JULY. 19511 . -npic nm W Handwriting on the Wall -1950! To Belshazzar, king of ancient Babylon, the fearful warning on the wall of his banquet hall came too late. That very night he and his kingdom were destroyed. Here in America there's handwriting on our own walls today: "EXCESSIVE DEBT LEADS TO DISASTER!" Our public debt . . . national, state and local . . . staggers the imagination. YC'orse yet, through the so-called policy of "Deficit Spending," we are plunging deeper and deeper into the red. We're spending money ue don't have. These spending policies now endanger the security and prosperity of all American business and industry, both large and small, and of their employes, stockholders and customers. That means, of course, that the security and prosperity of you and you . . . and everyone else ... is at stake, too! Take a look at the record. During America's first 152 years (1789 to 1941), the federal government spent a total of 180 billion dollars. Now, in the five years end- ing June, 1950, it will have spent 217 billion dollars. That is 37 billion dollars more, spent in the last jive years alone, than was spent during the first century and a half of our nation's existence. Any man can create a false and temporary prosperity for himself by living beyond his income and by bor- rowing money to make up the difference. Would you handle your own family finances that way? Of course not. Nor would any sensible business man handle his company's affairs in such a manner. A day of reckon- ing always comes. Debts must be paid. The policy of "Deficit Spending" has now increased the federal debt to 256 billion dollars. Your share of this debt burden is SI 700. Your wife and each member of your family owes that much, too. So does every person in America. Each of your children must face the future, carrying a S1700 mortgage, as of today. It may be more next year. There is one answer to this frightening problem . . . SIMPLE, SENSIBLE, DAY-BY-DAY ECONOMY. Most of us practice that kind of economy in our private lives. Isn't it time we started to practice that same kind of econ- omy in our national, state and local governments, too?

Approved more than a year ago by the Board of Directors, the plan did not become effective un- til July 1, 1950 due to the Prog- ress Fund campaign. More com- plete information about this pro- gram will be distributed in the fall. ..st. The cover picture for this issue will be familiar to all who attended the June reunion and saw the excellent spirit displayed by the Class of 1925 celebrating its silver reunion. Dressed as singing bakers the class won the David M. Petty parade flag for making the best appearance, and a- large share of credit for this success must go to Robert S. Taylor, Jr. and Spencer C. Kittinger who are pictured as the class lined up in the stadium for the presen- tation. ~^t~ While football season is still several months away, alumni will be interested to know that the opening game will be played Sep- tember 23 in Taylor stadium with the University of Delaware as the opponent. One of the best bal- anced in many years this year's schedule finds the Brown and White traveling to Cleveland to meet Case on September 30, and then on the following week-end the squad invades Bucknell to meet the Bisons. Gettysburg comes to Bethlehem October 7, and on the 14th the team goes to Dart- mouth. The next three games with Rutgers, Muhlenberg, and Carne- gie are at home on successive Sat- urdays, and then on November 18 the season concludes with the La- fayette game at Easton. e "\ THE *£e&ty& /4tum*U ^>utlett<€ Published by the Alumni Association of Lehigh University, Inc.

Dignified and calm in its exterior lines, the building is packed with interesting features from its basement to the tip of its graceful tower. It is the largest completely air-condi- tioned building in New England, floors and steel-paneled walls are soundproofed. There are lounge areas, a game room, library, large cafeteria served by an all-electric kitchen, and a spacious auditorium equipped for a complete radio show. A modern skyscraper like the John Han- cock Building is an expression of many com- bined skills, of which Bethlehem was called upon to supply a full share. We furnished steel piling that was driven deep into the earth to give the building firm bedrock support. We made, fabricated and erected the 15,000 tons of structural steel forming the hidden skeleton. And Bethlehem elevator cable is helping the high-speed elevators to maintain the smooth flow of vertical trans- portation to the building's twenty-six stories. Architects and Engineers: Cram and Ferguson, Boston Builder: Turner Construction Company, New York BETHLEHEM STEEL FOR WEEKS in advance Class chairmen and members of the Association's Alumni Reunion committee had been preparing for the week-end of June 16-17 when Lehigh men from all parts of the country would return to well-remembered scenes of undergraduate days. That their efforts were well worthwhile was evidenced by the en- thusiasm with which reunioning alumni participated in the program which had been prepared for them. Early Friday morning the vanguard of alumni began ar- riving on the campus, and within a few hours the "old grads" had completely taken over the Alumni Memorial building. First alumnus to register Claude A. P. Turner, a member of 1890 back for his sixtieth reunion, came all the way from Columbus, Ohio, by bus to join his class- mates and friends of the Fifty Plus Club. Opening function on the program concerned only mem- bers of the Association's Board of Directors who met in annual session at the Bethlehem Club early Friday after- noon to hear reports and to plan for future activities. Mean- while other early arrivals toured the campus, talked to faculty members, and later in the afternoon joined friends and classmates for informal parties before the annual ban- quet that evening. First official get-together of all alumni, the Association's banquet in Grace Hall broke with tradition as President Whitaker delivered his annual report at this time rather than Saturday morning during the business meeting. An all- Lehigh party the banquet included a short talk by Eugene G. Grace, '99, the presentation of Special Awards, and a unique musical program presented by undergraduates. The banquet with its color, spirit and comradeship set the tempo for another successful reunion. Saturday dawned bright and clear and it wasn't long be- fore alumni, their registration completed, began visiting familiar campus scenes, and renewing college made friend- ships. But promptly at 10:30 many turned toward Packard auditorium for the annual business meeting of the Associa- tion. Conducted by President Edward A. Curtis, '25, the meet- ing reviewed the work of the Association during the past year, and gave alumni details of the new Alumni Fund pro- gram. Officers elected at the meeting are Mr. Curtis, presi- dent; George F. A. Stubs, '22, and H. Randolph Maddox, '21, vice-presidents; Alfred S. Osbourne, '09, and Clifford F. Lincoln, '11, alumni trustees, and Hugh P. McFadden, '25, treasurer. At noon alumni and their families were guests of the University at luncheon in Grace Hall, and then parading alumni assembled at class headquarters while others went to the stadium for the grand finale. Paced by 1925, the parade crossed the campus to the stadium where the program closed with the presentation of awards and the dedication of Lehigh's new $800,000 gymnasium. Claude A. P. Turner, '90, was the first to register EXPANDS MARINE REPAIR FACILITIES WITH 400-Ton Floating Drydock With the addition of a Dravo-built floating drydock, Eric Railroad expanded its New York Harbor maintenance facilities to include hull service on tugs, barges, scows and lighters. This welded steel floating drydock, similar to equipment used in naval repair service, was designed by Erie and Dravo engineers to accommodate harbor craft up to 400 gross tons. Construction and operating specifications include: Hull length -110 feet Length over outrigging — 130 feet Working deck width — 48 feet Submerging time— 20 minutes Draft, light — 3 feet Draft, submerged — 23' L > feet Total height, light — 24 feet Pump-out time — 51 minutes In designing and constructing a floating drydock, or in providing similar services on scows, barges, carfloats and other types of floating equipment, Dravo brings to the fleet operator a wealth of practical experience. This experience, and the extensive Dravo facilities, offer that extra assurance that Dravo-built floating equipment will stand up under every harbor operating condition. Dravo engineers will welcome an opportunity to discuss your needs — to work with you on alterations, repairs or new construction. Your request for further information is invited. -■-:■-■ -.'.

Muel- ler, '18, presented the keys to Lehigh's new $800,000 gymnasium to President Whitaker last month during Alumni Reunion, the action marked the completion of an- other milestone in the forward progress of the University. For the gymnasium addition, giving Lehigh one of the finest athletic plants in the east, was the final project of a threefold program started several years ago with the open- ing of the Progress Fund drive. Other projects, which were a direct result of the Progress campaign, were the construction of a large modern dormitory and an increase in the University's general endowment funds. Highlight of Lehigh's Alumni Reunion week-end, the dedication, held in Taylor stadium, followed the traditional parade of classes, and was in charge of Alfred V. Bodine, 15, trustee chairman of the University's committee on buildings and grounds, who introduced alumnus Mueller. • Chairman of the University's important endowment com- mittee, and a key figure in the recent Progress Fund cam- paign, Mr. Mueller said that, "with the dedication of this building, we bring down the curtain on a particular suc- cess story that we hope will set an oft repeated pattern for the future." He said that the new gymnasium will always stand as a permanent monument to the service of 1,541 volunteer workers during the campaign and to the generosity of more than 5,300 alumni and friends of Lehigh whose gifts ex- ceeded by more than half a million dollars the original Progress goal of $1,500,000. President Whitaker who accepted the gift for the Uni- versity expressed his gratitude by saying, "for these facil- ities which you have made possible, which bring to Lehigh modern equipment for physical education, I thank you. No goal could have been more worthy . . . No job better done. "Symbolically these keys will open the door not only to a building but to a program of life for Lehigh students. Spectators sports have never been our goal here, nor should they be in the lives of Lehigh men. Rather it is our aim that every student shall learn here the good habits of par- ticipation to the end that they may enjoy the vigor of good health and experience the value of team play. Habits like these are carried over into postgraduate life with benefits we well recognize." The gymnasium which will be ready for undergraduates when they return this fall features a swimming pool which measures 75 feet by 42 feet and is faced by a gallery seat- ing 600 spectators. A submarine window, six feet long, two feet wide and one-half inch thick, from which coaches will spot flaws in technique is one of the novel installations in the new pool. The main building includes three basketball courts for intramural competition, a new wrestling room, student and faculty locker rooms and showers, physical education class- rooms and a trophy room. It has glass brick walls which will eliminate glare from the sun. Above: A view from the south.

Honoured guests at the banquet, members of the ( lass of 1900, celebrating their fiftieth reunion, were introduced bj toastmaster Alfred V. Bodine, '15, as were representa- tives of the Fifty Plus ( lub. Other features of the banquet included greetings by Eu- gene G. Grace, '99, president of the Hoard of Trustees, a welcome by Edward A. Curtis, '25, Alumni Association president, the presentation of Special Awards to seven men. and a special musical program prepared by Lehigh's ( lilt Cleffs, an undergraduate organization. Always a popular feature of reunion week-end the Spe- cial Awards recipients were announced by Sam T. Harle- man, '01, committee chairman. Only non-alumnus to be honoured this year was Howard R. "Bosey" Reiter, emer- itus professor of physical education, who retired in 1941 after 30 years of devoted service to Lehigh. "Bosey," who leaves the campus this summer to live with his son in Connecticut, has played an important part in the growing picture of Lehigh, especially in the development of athlet- ics. An exponent of clean, hard fight in any sport, "Bosey" is beloved by the entire alumni body. First alumnus to receive an Award this year Charles J. McGonigle, '01, is a partner in Poole and McGonigle, Portland, Oregon, a structural steel concern, but despite his distance from the campus he has always been active in the program of the University. A key alumnus on the west coast he has been of great assistance to alumni in that area. Next Award went to William Frank Roberts, '02, civic and industrial leader in Baltimore. A Life Member of the Association he has still found time to devote to the inter- ests of his alma mater. Schafer, Spaeth, Stritzinger. Fair and Harleman Dr. W hitaker chats with alumni Grace.

Sinn, one of its most loyal members who re- tired as an executive with the New Jersey Zinc Company in 1944 only to become a Consulting Engineer with the Amer- ican Metal Company in New York. A participant in all Lehigh programs, alumnus Sinn well deserves the Award given him. Fifth alumnus to receive the gold lapel pin and leather encased certificate of merit, Michael H. Kuryla, '05, retired recently as president of the U. S. Smelting, Refining and Mining Corp. in Boston, Mass., and while he spent many years in foreign countries, he never lost his love for Lehigh, and today is listed among the University's more active alumni. T"1 enumerate the achievements of David H. Brillhart. -"- 06, the next recipient, would fill pages. One of Beth- lehem's business, industrial and civic leaders, he is on the board of directors of many enterprises, and is recognized as one of the city's outstanding citizens. On the Lehigh campus he is known for his generous support and unfailing cooperation in every worthwhile project. Active in the program of the Association and of the Pittsburgh Lehigh Club, John B. Carlock, '07, has had a varied career beginning in 1907 with the Bethlehem Steel Company, and ending in 1949 when he retired as Chief Engineer of Plants for the Jones and Laughlin Steel Corp. He was the seventh to receive the Special Award this year. Dr. Whitaker in his report (full text will appear in the annual report of the University to be published this fall) said that to "educate" young men is to aid them in develop- ing themselves into citizens of maximum usefulness to themselves, to others, to their churches, their country and to the world. "The essentials for doing a good educational job," he said, "include satisfactory students, adequate fac- ulty, and staff, suitable facilities and resources and certain intangibles such as reputation, good traditions, enthusiastic alumni body, confidence and support of the community and of potential employers. These are all interdependent." Alumni president Ed Curtis bids farewell to "Bosey" Reitei BUSINESS MEETING WHILE most Lehigh men returned to South Mountain June 16-17 to have a good time. .1 small but enthus- iastic group did take time out to attend to the busi- ness of operating the Alumni Association. During the weekend, in addition to the annual meeting Saturday morn- ing, the Association's Board of Directors met three times to determine a policy for the future. Saturday's meeting held in Packard Auditorium was high- lighted by annual committee reports, the election of officers for the coming year, and the presentation of Active Mem- bership cups. Officers elected are Edward A. Curtis, '25, Administrative officers and directors talk shop Luncheon preceded the Board's annual meeting president for a second term; George F. A. Stutz, Jr., '22, senior vice-president; H. Randolph Maddox, '21, junior vice-president; Hugh P. McFadden, '25, treasurer; Alfred S. Osbourne, '09, alumnus trustee for six years, and Clif- ford F. Lincoln, 11. alumnus trustee for three years. The Active Membership trophy awarded annually to the class having the largest percentage of dues payers was pre- sented this year to the Class of 1895 with 74$ participa- tion. The trophy presented to Memorial Gift Insurance classes on the same basis was awarded to the Class of 1949 with 6CKf participation. Biggest step taken at any of the meetings was the revision of the Alumni Fund program, based on a report submitted to the Board of Directors several years ago but held in abeyance due to the recent Progress Fund campaign. This program which became effec- tive July 1, 1950 effects a combination of Alumni Association dues and the Lehigh Alumni Fund, but retains Alumni Student Grants as a separate item. The program as approved follows: THAT the Lehigh Alumni Associa- tion continue to undertake the solici- tation and collection of the annual Alumni Fund for the benefit of the University. THAT the fund raising activities be under the control of the Board of Di- rectors of the Alumni Association with the treasurer of the University serving in an advisory capacity. r PHAT the Executive Committee of * the Council of Lehigh Class Agents be responsible for the solicita- tion and collection of the annual Alumni Fund. THAT the Alumni Fund campaign be the only annual solicitation for funds among alumni and that there be no further independent collection of alumni dues. THAT checks be made payable to the Lehigh University Alumni Fund. THAT the Lehigh Alumni Bulletin continue to be published as it has in the past, independent of any Alumni Fund solicitation. THAT the Alumni Student Grants Fund be separate from that of the Alumni Fund. (a) Methods of raising this fund to be determined by the Board of Directors and the Alumni Student Grants Col- lection Committee. THAT in the annual report of the Alumni Fund all con- tributors be credited by name only. THAT money derived from the Alumni Fund be allo- cated as follows: (a) Cost of operation of the Council of Class Agents. (b) Cost necessary to adequately maintain the Alumni Association, a budget' to be prepared annually by the of- ficers of the Association, and approved by the Board of Di- rectors at its annual meeting. (c) An amount not to exceed five per cent of the Fund after expenses are deducted to be retained each year by the Alumni Association as a reserve fund until the total is $50,000. This money to be invested by and used at the discretion of the Board of Directors. (d) The net amount of the Fund will then be given to the University at the end of each fiscal year for unrestricted purposes. A LSO of interest to most alumni was the general report •^*- of the Executive Secretary which said in part, "Last June when the Executive Committee prepared for the 1949- 50 fiscal year several objectives were established. These in- cluded J ) the strengthening of alumni clubs and the de- velopment of new ones wherever possible; 2) increased dis- Directors Stutz and Curtis review the reports semination of University and alumni news; 3) the develop- ment of an alumni placement service in cooperation with the University's Placement Bureau; 4) the enhancement of student-alumni relations, and 5) the strengthening of Le- high's Council of Class Agents. There were others, but these were the principal targets for the year. "Committee statements (see Proceedings of Business Meetings on page 16) which accompany this report show how well we have done. Personally, I feel that several large strides have been made in the right direction. Our alumni clubs are stronger and more active than ever before; several new groups have been organized and others will be started in the near future; alumni-student relations have been strengthened and the Association's three publications are covering a large and varied field of activities. The Council of Class Agents is emerging from the experimental stage and should be of great assistance to the University and to the Association." In concluding his report to alumni the Executive Secre- tary recommended that work started on the organization of new clubs be continued, and that all clubs should have at least one visit a year from a campus representative; the strengthening of class organizations; and the scheduling of a Visitation Day during the college year so that interested alumni could visit the campus, talk to faculty members, and participate in an open forum on subjects of mutual interest. CLASS PARADE FWiM Kin Willi almosl perfecl weathci (remember the torrents ol 19) Lehigh's reunioning classes began Forming early on the afternoon ol June 17 on Packer Hall drive for their traditional campus parade which, this vt.u. would end in Taylor stadium. Scheduled to starl 15 p.m., the classes were so well organized thai by 2 10 o'clock .ill were read) to march and so without further delay the chief marshal! raised his baton and the L950 parade was under w Led by the < lass ol 1925 dressed as singing bakers and • by the Red and Blue clad Bethlehem High School hand, the alumni marched down campus roads to the flag- pole, across Memorial Walk to Taylor Street and into Taylor stadium where all classes formed en masse for the presentation oi reunion awards and the dedication ot Le- high's new gymnasium. Once in Taylor stadium, the classes marched past the reviewing stand and then took their assigned places on the gridiron for the presentation exercises. Judges for the occasion were Rolland L. Adams, publisher of the Bethle- hem Globe-Times. Clarence B. Campbell, assistant director of admissions at the University, and Professor Judson G. Smull, '06, who retired from Lehigh's faculty at the end of the spring semester. It was their responsibility to select the class which in their opinion made the best appearance as it passed the reviewing stand. After much deliberation the judges agreed unanimously that the David M. Petty Reunion Flag for 1950 should go to the Class of 1925, and the presentation was made to the class by George A. Rupp, '28, reunion chairman. Final award of the 1891 Reunion Cup presented to the class having the largest percentage of its members registered for reunion went to the Class of 1895 and was accepted for that group by Francis L.

Dr. If hitaker welcome Bishop Emrich to Lehigh WHILE MOST alumni, tired af- ter a full week-end of activity, were turning homeward, the se- nior class, largest in Lehigh's history, prepared for graduation exercises which began Sunday, June 18th with baccalaureate services and ended the following afternoon when President Whitaker conferred 581 degrees at commencement exercises held in Grace Hall. Due to the size of the class and the number of people expected to attend, baccalaureate services this year were also held in Grace Hall with the ser- mon being delivered by the Rt. Rev. Richard S. Emrich, Bishop of the Epis- copal Diocese of Michigan. He told graduates that no person who follows a party line can be honest or a patient and humble seeker for 12 truth. "Education," he said, "is built upon the patient and humble seeking for objective truth wherever it may be found. Any partyliner tidies things up, leaves out the facts, distorts them so that they fit the party line." Bishop Emrich concluded by saying that "we need in the world today hon- est, predictable people. It will help you to see that honesty is a law, that truth is higher than and should judge every group to which we belong, and that life is lived before the face of God. Honesty means that there is a basic integrity in a man and dishonesty means that his character is beginning to decay. Dishonesty means social cha- os and honesty is a basis of order and peace." Commencement speaker and recipi- ent of the honorary degree of Doctor "l I luin. iik I .filers, Erw in I ). < an ham, i chtoi nl I In- ( hi isli.in Si iciui Monitor, stressed the theme thai an awakening of a spiritual conscious ness, nni a new Messiah, is needed for the salvation of free society. Speaking on the subject, "The Au- i hi ni u Ri miIui nni In said, "We miisi mils over the ideas by which we live. The ideology ol ( ommimism is well- known and widely proclaimed. Il is passionately believed by many of those who proclaim it. This awareness and intensity is integrated and guided. ??rpHERE IS NO comparable in- *■ tensity or coordination of ideas among those who believe in the free system," he continued, "There will not be until we look at our heritage in fundamental terms, and arouse our- selves to its revolutionary import to- day. The obligation of every citizen, of every leader is to awaken himself and his fellowmen to the significance of today's challenge. "Let us regain perspective, let us cast off the inferiority complex with which communism has bemused us. Let us reaffirm a consciousness of our birthright." Continuing his address editor Can- ham declared, "The voice of no one of us is powerful enough to awaken all the slumberers in today's world. That is not bad; it is good; for sal- vation need come through no new Messiah. It is better that it should come through the people, the little people if you will, as each awakens to the truth about individual man in a society under God. The world that Led by the color guard Lehigh. s large: is being reborn can well awaken not through the trumpets of messiahship but from the inner voice of spiritual consciousness." Dr. Canham concluded by saying, "It is our individual and collective duty to think these things through for ourselves and in our free way to help our brother man to his needful aware- ness. Let us pass along the message of freedom. One day it will reach crit- ical mass and chain reaction will be- gin. Meantime, we must preserve the physical defenses of the western world by keeping military aggression at bav: we must strengthen the economic sin- ews and the stability of the free world; we must lead our civilization to higher plateaus of demonstrated freedom and achievement." TVTINETY-ONE seniors were presen- -L ' ted by Dean Robert P. More for their Bachelor of Arts diplomas, while Dean Carl E. Allen introduced 120 students for the Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. Professor Loyal V. Bewley, head of the department of electrical engineer- ing, presented 286 seniors for the Bachelor of Science degrees in eight different branches. In addition to Dr. Canham others who received honorary degrees were Charles H. Herty, Jr., assistant to the vice-president in charge of steel oper- ations for the Bethlehem Steel Com- pany, who received the honorary de- gree of Doctor of Science, and Arthur A.

I welcome ihis op- portunity because, while members of the Board of Directors .ire cognizant of our operations. I seldom have a chance to te.l all members of Lehigh's Alumni Associa- tion about the work we are trying to do in their behalf. "An Alumni Association is not unlike a large industrial corporation with its thou- sands of stockholders. Each of you, as an active alumnus, has a voice in the Associa- tion's program, but all too frequently thou- sands are content to remain silent while de- cisions are made by a few who are willing to devote the time and effort required to strengthen the Association so that it can better serve the alumni and the University. The alumni office i.s your representative on the campus, but its scope is limited unless '.on make known your desires and unless _:i\. it full support. Last June when the Executive Commit- tee prepared for the 19-19-50 fiscal year sev- eral objectives were established. These in- cluded 1 ) the strengthening of alumni clubs and the development of new ones wherever possible; 2) increased dissemination of Uni- v and alumni news; 3) the develop- ment of an alumni placement service in co- operation with the University's Placement Bureau; 4) the enhancement of studen:- alumni relations, and 5 ) the strengthening of Lehigh's Council of Class Agents. There were others, but these were the principal targets for the year. "Committee statements which accompany my report show how well we have done in achieving our various goals.

Last year I reported that Sen 7 -! had been received in subscrip- tions from 3170 alumni. At the present time the Bulletin's total circulation is 5,253, the highest ill ovir history. "The record for alumni dues payments has also been good, with 3774 men paying $10,303 this year as compared to 3619 pay- ing SI 0.692 last year. The difference in the comparative figures i.s caused by the fact that more younger alumni paid dues this year than in 1948-49 and since dues are less for younger classes than they are for older groups, the financial return was not as large. "I am pleased to report that this has been the best year in the history of the Alumni Student Grants fund with 877 men con- tributing SI 2,223.47 to the Association's program to provide financial aid for quali- fied and deserving young men with athletic ability. More contributions were received from more men than ever before. A large share of credit for this success must go to the various alumni club committees which worked so well during the fall months when a personal contact campaign for funds was conducted. 'Detailed accounts of Association opera- tions will be found in the committee and fi- nancial reports which follow, but before concluding my report there are certain rec- ommendations I should like to make. These are: 1. Alumni Clibs. Work started on the organization of new alumni clubs should be continued and developed. Clubs already in existence should be strengthened whenever necessary, and a complete program should be prepared in advance for the year. It would be well to invite club representatives to the campus for a conference on such spe- cial projects as placement, undergraduate procurement, public relations, and Student Grants collections. By such a mutual ex- change of ideas a definite program of action could be formulated. 2. Classes. Steps should be taken to strengthen our various class organizations, permanent officers should be elected, com- mittees appointed, and each class should be ready to act whenever it is called on to do so. Such organization would be most help- ful in developing class reunions and in pre- paring class agents for the Alumni Fund. 3. Class Agents. The proper class organ- ization would ultimately result in the de- velopment of a better program for the Coun- dl oi (lass Agents .'i\A efforts should be made to strengthen this organization so thai in do mon i ffi i tivi work lor the Uni- versity. I recommend that the Hoard of Di- rectors .tnA the Executivi Committee ol the Council start now in preparing tin Fund program for 1950-51, so thai tin ai th ttii s ol the Association and the Council will be belter coordinated in the future. i. Visitation Day. For lack "t ■< bettei nam at the moment I refer to this as Visi- tation Day, hut wli.n I recommend is tin ■ i King aside of one day a year when inter- ested alumni can visit the campus, talk with faculty members, attend classes if they so desire, and participate in an open forum on Some topic of mutual interest to all con- cerned. Alumni reunion weekend is not the time for such a program because college is not in session, and most faculty members are no longer on the campus. I envision this day as being the time when Lehigh alumni and faculty can become better acquainted with each other, and I am sure all would benefit from a well planned program." Next report that of the Council of Lehigh Class Agents was presented by Mr. Harle- man as follows; "The annual meeting of the Council of Class Agents was held September 24, 1949 with representatives from 5.3 classes present. Group discussions were led by members of the executive committee with the view in mind of forming class committees. Class agents were asked to study their class rosters and to prepare an estimate of what each class could be expected to contribute to the Alumni Fund during the 1949-50 fiscal year. An executive committee meeting was held October 17, 1949 to discuss class gifts as submitted by the agents. As a result, a goal of 585,000 was suggested and later ap- proved by the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association. This figure of $85,000 was broken up into class quotas by means of a "giving curve" and all classes were notified of their quotas. "The Alumni Fund activities started with a meeting of class agents and class commit- teemen in the Bethlehem area on February 27, 1950, which was attended by 50 class representatives. Other regional meetings were held in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Newark. "On May 18 a precedent was set when Eric Erikson, president of the class of 1950, attended a dinner meeting where he intro- duced Victor Daub as the appointed class agent, together with 28 class committeemen. They were welcomed to the Council of Class Agents, made acquainted with alumni activities and briefed on their work in be- half of Lehigh. A guest was Albert Bryniar- ski, Jr., president of the class of 1951. He understands what he has to do to emulate the example of Eric Erikson. This is bound to have its effect in the years to come. "Class committees were organized by 25 classes, and cards with full data on each man were sent to class committeemen. At the start of this fiscal year — July 1, 1949 — we had an alumni list of 10,980. Allowing for men still paying to the Progress Fund, and Insurance men (1940-1949) still under the 10-year rule of no. solicitation for fund, dues or Bulletin subscriptions, we had 7,000 alumni eligible for Alumni Fund solicita- tion. Thus far we have had contributions of $32,741.21 from 587 alumni. "Four meetings of the executive commit- tee were held during the year." Following a motion by directors Watson and Klein this report was accepted, and then David M. Petty, Council President, submitted a supplementary report which was accepted as follows: "In addition to the report covering the activities of the Council of Class Agents for the current year, I have a few comments I would like to add, not so much in the way of an alibi for the failure on the part of our Class Agents as a whole to meet their quota, but rather an explanation of how and why we made such a bad estimate in setting the quota at $85,000. "Approaching the problem from a real- istic but not defeatist point of view, I feel that we overestimated the ability of our various Class Agents to convert the large list of non-givers (by this I mean those who have never given to Lehigh in any form ) to givers and we on the Executive Committee overestimated our ability to get all Class Agents to pick up their work where it was left off in 1947 without any lag in the en- thusiasm and ability to organize their Class, not only as to a strong committee but also as a group of enthusiastic supporters for Lehigh. "In referring to the size of the quota: There were many who felt that we should be able to reach $100,000. All of us felt that that was a potential possibility, but even those among us who were most en- thusiastic about this figure have found the difficulties greater than we imagined. At the time of our Fall Meeting held on October 17th, we asked all Class Agents to write us a memorandum stating what they thought their Class would be good for. We actually heard from less than one-half of all the Class Agents and based the quota on the figures which were presented by the Class Agents who made a reply. On the basis of some of these replies, our quota should have been considerably less. Likewise, had we followed the lead of several Class Agents our quota would have been mdch higher. The point which we overlooked was that the Class Agents who made no reply to this request also generally have not been able to do very much with their respective classes. "Difficulties which have been encountered may be summarized as follows: "1. 3000 men who have been the back- bone of annual giving in the past were still paying on their Progress Fund Subscrip- tion. "There were also 1500 younger Alumni who are classified as insurance men who are presumed to be exempt from all Alumni Solicitation. This represents graduates back to Class of '39. Total Prospects 11,000 less 4,500 "The remaining 5000 were not personally solicited for the Progress Fund. Generally, they live in remote places and did not re- spond to letter solicitation in the Progress Fund and neither have they responded very well to letter solicitation for the Alumni Fund. "2. Some men are holding back expecting another Progress Fund Drive in the nol too distant future. "3. Some men have a feeling that the Progress Fund plus other recent gifts and the increase in tuition has solved all the financial problems Lehigh could possibly 6,500 men available for Alumni Fund this year. This includes 1500 men who refused to give to the Progress Fund. ALUMNI ASSOCIATION OF LEHIGH UNIVERSITY, INC.

Make .1 very Complete Annual Re- port in September stressing Continuity of Giving. This is the answer to any successful Annual Giving Program. 2. Hold the Annual Meeting of Class Agents October 21, 1950, starting with luncheon. No football game that day. 3. During November, December and January concentrate on organizing the re- mainder of Classes starting at 11. 4. Start Campaign February 1. We can- not hope to run a quick Campaign until we are better organized. 5. We must set up a system of Expense Accounts for Class Agents who do not live in Bethlehem. Necessary to cover typing — telephone calls — postage, etc. 6. Closer cooperation of Quarterly Bulle- tin, especially Spring Issue. 7. Help from Alumni Trustees in getting their Classes organized. Only Class repre- sented by a Trustee that looks good now is '08 — and Curtis' Class '25. S. See that Student Grant Drive is fin- ished by December 31st. 9. Make an even stronger and more wide general Tax Anticipation solicitation. 10. Value of District Meetings for Class Agents and their Committeemen — doubtful, should be discontinued for the present. 11. Our problem next year and every year thereafter is to get a gift from the man who has not before given to Lehigh and then hold him in the ranks of Annual Giv- ers." A special committee was appointed by President Curtis to study not only the rec- ommendations made by Mr. Petty, but the recommendations submitted by the Execu- tive Secretary. This committee which was instructed to report back to the Board by- July 15 is comprised of George F. A. Stutz, 18 chairman, 1 ■ onard M 1 lorton, 1 1 Randolj h \. David M Petty, and John I Kirk patrick, University rrcasurei with th< Presi- dent .111.I Secretary ol the Alumni Associa- tion serving as ex officio members The reports ol the Association's Standing ittees were approved as presented and nit hided: ALUMNI CLUBS When new directors ol the Alumni As- sociation assumed office last June the) an- nounced as one of their aims foi 1949 ' the development and enhancement of Le- high's alumni clubs throughout the country. How successful this project has been is evi- denced by the fact that this has been a ban- ner year for club activity. Twenty-nine clubs .ire now officially rec- ognized by the Board of Directors and the majority of these are operating under the constitution and by-laws as proposed by the Association in its Club Manual published list \e.ir. In addition, branch or division clubs have been meeting in Westchester County, N. Y., Phillipsburg, N. J., and Canton, Ohio. Additional new clubs are be- ing planned for New England, Texas and Long Island. These will be organized this fall. Special attention has been given to the rejuvenation of mid-western and western alumni groups, and this year all of the As- sociation's clubs have received at least two visits from campus representatives. In addi- tion, informal meetings were held in Port- land, Seattle, Minneapolis, Kansas City, St. Louis and Houston. Campus representatives attended each meeting and did so much to stimulate alumni spirit in these areas that it is hoped to make this visitation an an- nual event. All alumni clubs have held at least one meeting during the past year, with some meeting three and four times. Regular luncheon meetings are now being held in New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Wil- mington, Cleveland and Bethlehem. These are in addition to regularly scheduled eve- ning programs. Last fall selected clubs were made respon- sible for the solicitation of funds for the Alumni Student Grants program. That more money was raised this year than ever before for this project is indicative of the enthus- iasm with which the clubs handled this as- signment. Steps are now being taken to have the alumni clubs cooperate with the University's admissions office to interest qualified young high school or preparatory school students in continuing their education at Lehigh. Truly this has been a most successful year for Lehigh's alumni clubs, and it is hoped that this work will continue unabat- ed because the basis of the University's suc- cess is found in the interest and enthusiasm of its alumni body. ALUMNI DAY Following in the footsteps of its prede- cessor, the 1950 Alumni Day Committee has designed its program to allow as much time as possible for returning alumni to re- new college-made friendships and to visit the campus. For the first time in many years the entire program will be an all-Lehigh week-end, with all activity being confined to the campus .uid with .ill spukeis being L< high "i' n An innovation this yeai is the presenta tion ot Presidenl \\ Intake is .niiiu.il reporl to alumni at the Assot iation's banqui I in daj evening rather than on Saturday al thi business meeting. It is tell that tins is a more appro] i iati 01 i asion for thi n i not only because so tew alumni attend the business session, hut because those .it thi banquet are vitally inti n sti d in hi at ing something about theii almo mater, Another highlight this year will be the dedication oi the new annex to Taylor gym- nasium Saturday following the class paradl With this in mind the committee has ar- ranged its parade route to end in Tayloi stadium where the dedication will lake place following the presentation of awards to reunion classes. The committee has worked in close co- operation with the various class chairmen and, except for the weather, believes it has everything under control. AWARDS At its meeting March 4, 1950, the Board of Directors approved a report of its Special Awards Committee recommending that the following men be honoured by the Associa- tion this year: Charles J. McGonigle, '01, W. Frank Roberts, '02, Frank P. Sinn, '04, Michael H. Kuryla, '05, David H. Brillhart, '06, J. Bruce Carlock, '07 and Howard R. "Bosey" Reiter. MEMORIAL GIFTS It is my pleasure to report the following figures concerning the class insurance by the Class of 1950 at Lehigh University: Number of students graduated February, 1950 228 Number of students who took class insurance 126 Percentage who took class insurance 48.7% Men scheduled to graduate, June 18, 1950 532 No. who have completed application for insurance 337 Percentage who have completed ap- plication for insurance 63% Total number of prospective grad- uates 760 Total taken out or signed up for class insurance 463 Percentage who have taken out class insurance 60% Breakdown by living groups (June): Dormitories: Number of men graduating 123 Number of men taking class insur- ance 90 Percentage of men taking class in- surance 73% Fraternities: Number of men graduating 206 Number of men taking class insur- ance 151 Percentage of men taking class in- surance 73% Town : Number of men graduating 203 Number of men taking class insur- ance . 96 Percentage of men taking class in- surance 42% In the academic year 1948, 38% of the February graduates participated in the Class Insurance Program and 41% of the June graduates. In 1949, 58% of the class par- ticipated. These figures for 1950, with 463 men participating in the Class Insurance Pro- gram at this date, are slightly over 60% of the entire class and represent the largest number of men who have ever taken out class insurance at Lehigh in one year. The-, class of 1950 has surpassed the record- breaking performance by the class of 1949 the preceding year. An almost unbelievable amount of hard work, energy, initiative and sacrificial service has made 1950 the most successful year in the history of the Class Insurance Program. Special credit should go to Eric R. Erikson, president of the Class of 1950, and to Ronald J. Young, chairman of the Class Memorial Gift Committee, whose work has made this record possible, as weil as to the following men without whose contribution this result would have been impossible: Henry Bonfig, William G. Campbell, Victor R. Daub, Harold A. Eisen- hauer, Carl S. Frensky, John J. Galvin, David H. Griffin, Vito A. Scriptunas, Alex- ander F. Smith and Stuart B. Webb. UNDERGRADUATE CONTACT Convinced that the Undergraduate Con- tact Committee as organized some years ago had outlived its usefulness, the Board this year took steps to provide a closer liaison between the Association and Lehigh's un- dergraduates. In addition to the efforts of alumni office personnel, the Board arranged a dinner meeting at the Bethlehem Club for student leaders and selected key alumni. So successful was this venture and so en- thusiastic were alumni and students who attended that two or three meetings of this type are now being planned for each year. This meeting gave undergraduates an op- portunity to explain their various activities to alumni and at the same time it gave alumni a chance to tell students about the operations of the Association. It was mu- tually advantageous to both groups, and well worth the effort. In fact, Arcadia, student council, has ap- proved plans calling for the permanent or- ganization of an Alumni Contact Commit- tee which will give all student organizations an opportunity to meet and discuss their programs with alumni from time, to time. PLACEMENT Mr. Everett Teal, director of placement, reports that 295 of the 517 seniors to grad- uate this June have already been placed, and that many more have leads which should materialize in the near future. The placement office has been working in close cooperation with the alumni office in developing a program for placing alumni seeking new positions, and during the past 12 months 181 graduates of the University have been aided by this plan. It is expected that this program will be developed to a point where the placement office can offer the maximum of assistance to Lehigh's alumni. LIBRARY It is the job of every librarian to work always for a balance between space, staff, and books. No library ever has, at least for a long time, enough of any. And they all cost money. There are several things that can be done at Lehigh to postpone adding to the present Library building for some- time. All are under serious study, and all will sooner or later be put into effect. As for staff, we have quality throughout, and we expect to add shortly to the growing number of employees necessary to bring the library up to full efficiency. The one thing a library cannot get along without is books. Most of ours are pur- chased, but from time to time we receive valuable accessions through the generosity of alumni. Among the donors of the past year were: The Estate of the late Samuel E. Berger, '89, whose entire library of classics was be- queathed. Chen Chia Li, '49 Mr. and Mrs. F. Fox, in memory of their son, Warren, '45. L. P. Grossart, '17 E. S. Hamilton, '50 S. T. Harleman, '01 J. R. Hertzler, '27 Henry S. Jacoby, '7 F. N. Kneas, '98, who gave a fund for the purchase of books in Religion. M. H. Kuryla, '05 (The first mining laws of Mexico.) R. E. Laramy, '96 E. W. Rosenbaum, '48 A. P. Steckel, '99 (An early edition of Newton's OPTIKS.) R. G. Steinhardt, '40 PUBLICATIONS One regular meeting of the committee was held this year in New York, and in ad- dition members of the committee have served as special consultants to the Bulletin editor. The committee is well pleased with the work being done by the Association's three publications — the Bulletin, the Quar- terly Review Number and the monthly Le- high Letter. All are serving their purpose of keeping alumni informed about Univer- sity and alumni news. In discussing plans for 1950-51 the Com- mittee approved a new cover series which will feature members of the faculty, and the work they are doing on the campus. Several new features were also approved and will be started with the first issue in the fall. Bulletin circulation at present is 5253, the highest in the publication's history. Dur- ing the year a special circulation campaign was conducted with the cooperation of class correspondents, and while the over-all re- sults were not as good as anticipated, the circulation among several classes was in- creased considerably. During the year 3559 alumni paid in sub- scriptions a total of $10,752.30 as compared to 3170 paying $9,774 in 1948-49. STUDENT GRANTS COLLECTIONS Early last summer when members of the Student Grants Collection Committee met in Bethlehem it was decided to run an inten- sive campaign among some of the Associa- tion's more active alumni clubs in order to raise more money for Grants. It was felt that a personal contact with alumni would produce more interest in this program. Ac- cordingly, representatives of the various clubs were invited to the campus where the program was explained, then endorsed by them. Appropriate literature was distribut- ed, and the campaign ran from September 26 to December 31. Here the Committee, realizing that a lot of men living in non- club areas had not been contacted, distribut- ed direct mail appeals to these men. It was the Committee's hope that suf- ficient funds would be raised to enable the Student Grants Committee to assist boys who participate in sports other than font ball, but while that goal was not achieved the Committee is pleased to report that this has been the best year in history for Student Grants Collections. As of June 10, 1950 a total of $12,223.47 has been contributed by 877 men. Not only is the amount raised greater than ever before, but the number of men participating is much higher. The Committee realizes that only the in- terest and enthusiasm of the various clubs made this record possible, and wants to take this opportunity of thanking committees in the following areas for their cooperation: Bethlehem, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cen- tral New Jersey, Southeastern Pennsylvania, New York City, Baltimore, Detroit and Northern New Jersey. The individual rec- ord of these clubs will be found in the re- port of the Student Grants Committee. It is the committee's belief that a pro- gram of this type should be continued, and that increased effort should be made to ex- pand the personal contact through club or- ganizations. This method is not only suc- cessful in raising the needed funds, but it enables the Association to better explain the Student Grants program to men who have not been acquainted with it in the past. STUDENT GRANTS Not counting the class which graduates this June, there are now in college 23 stu- dents receiving Grants, distributed among the various classes as follows: Year of Graduation No. of Students 1951 8 1952 10 1953 5 We have lost three men from the Class of 1951, one man from the Class of 1952 (since the last report) and one from the Class of 1953. The final standing of the men for the se- mester ending this June was not available early enough to include the number of men who will be on probation, but the proba- bilities, by past performance, indicate there will not be many. The Alumni Student Grants Committee at its meeting held December 2, 1949 de- cided because of the large commitments al- ready made, and the low rate at which the subscriptions were coming in to the Grants Fund, that no Grants would be made for the Fall of 1950. However, by the beginning of February the subscriptions had reached an amount which permitted the awarding of new Grants up to S2500 without jeopard- izing the Grants to the boys already in col- lege. This was agreed to by a letter ballot of the Alumni Student Grants Committee. Later, in the latter part of March, when 19 DlSTRIBI i 01 < ONTRIBI flONS B\ DlSTRII is Bethlehem Philadelphia Philadelphia Club Treasurj Pittsburgh Pittsburgh (lull Treasury Pennsylvania I thlehem, Phi la. & Pittsburgh) \,\v Y>rk ( itv Buffalo Ne* York (excl NY< and Buffalo) i Vu l,'s.\ 1 S w esl of Pennsylvania Scattered Delaware, Maryland, Washington, D.

The subscriptions to the Alumni Student Grants Fund have been the best this year than any since the initiation of this plan, a total of $12,120.47 being subscribed by 879 contributors. The highest previous total was in 1940-41, when $10,389.20 was sub- scribed by 519 contributors. However, $5,000 was subscribed by one contributor. The next highest year (1946-47) was $10,- 152.7S, subscribed by 742 contributors. The previous high in number of subscribers was the year 1947-48 when there were 832 con- tributors. This year, 128 contributors sub- scribed $6,189 of the total, in amounts vary- ing from S25 to $500. The remaining amount was contributed by 749 alumni. This indicates that the alumni body is showing an increased interest in giving to the Alum- ni Student Grants Fund, and also ihat the work of the Alumni Student Grants Collec- tion Committee, headed by S. D. Gladding, has been very gratifying. The financial state- ment is as follows: July 1, 1949 to May 31, 1950 $ S, 574.07 — Bank Balance June 30, 1949 12,120.47 — Deposits to 5/51/50 inclusive $20,694.54 636.17 — University Refunds to 5/31/50 1,104.71 — Committee Expenses to 5/31/50 $20,438.50 15,736.20— A.S.G. Expenses to 5/31/50 $21,330.71 212.50 — Interest on Investments $21,543.21 20 t 1,702.30 — Bank Balance May 31, 1950 With the increase in University tuition, the same amount of money allotted to Grants results in giving fewer individual Grants, and for this reason, if we wish to produce satisfactory results, it is desirable that the donations be increased from the original thought of $12,000 per year to $15,- 000 per year. For the Board's information the Committee is presenting two tables; one showing the contributors and the amount contributed for each of the last four Asso- ciation years, and the second, showing the distribution of these contributions by dis- tricts: Comparative Statement of Contributors and Contributions Contributions Contributors and Interest 1946-47 742 $10,577.78 1947-48 832 10,260.10 1948-49 551 6,957.52 1949-50 879 12,332.97 At the Student Meeting on Athletics on May 15, there was an insistent demand from quite a number of students that the Alumni Student Grants be broadened to take care of other athletes, particularly bas- ketball players. The Alumni Student Grants Committee is bringing this to the attention of the Board because the Committee's policy from the beginning is that no Grants will be made to any other athletic endeavour than football until such time as the fund is large enough to more than adequately cover the requirements of grants to football play- ers. In order to enable Alumni Trustees to attend a meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Association's directors adjourned their meeting, but reconvened at 5:30 p.m. to discuss new and unfinished business. How- ever, before adjourning, President Curtis pointed out that projects now being handled by the Alumni Association needed more time than could be afforded by two or three meetings a year, and suggested ili.it the Board meel more oft< n, m\A thai mon timi lx- spent by Directors in working foi tin Association .m^ the t ni\t i Ml\ Ills i>. miii mendation was heartily endorsed In all Di- rectors present, When the Board n I OW n I al 5: JO pin tin following 1 )u..

A considerable amount of time was spenl in revising the Association's Bj I tws to conform with the new Alumni Fund pro gram which will be inaugurated |uly 1, 1950. This Program (see report of Annual Ass, mation meeting) was approved n llun a year ago, but action was deferred un- til the Progress Fund had ended. By-Laws which were revised covered Ar- ticle 1 — Classes of Members and Members: Article IV — Officers and Standing Commit- tees and Article V — Association Dues. The Executive Secretary was authorized to re- publish the By-Laws for distribution to in- terested alumni. There being no further business the meet- ing adjourned at 7:15 p.m. ALUMNI \SSO< I.ATION MEETING The annual business meeting of the Alum- ni Association was held Saturday June 17 at 10:30 a.m. in Packard Laboratory Audi- torium with President Edward A. Curtis, '25, presiding. Following the approval of the minutes of the June 18, 1949 Alumni Meeting as pub- lished in the Alumni Bulletin, President Curtis appointed Matthew K. Morris, '40 and Walter G. Guy, '40 as tellers to count the ballots. The Executive Secretary's report, the fi- nancial reports, and the statements of the Association's standing committees were ac- cepted as presented. (For details of all re- ports see account of Board of Directors meeting published elsewhere in this issue.) There being no unfinished business the Association then discussed the new Alumni Fund program which will begin July 1, 1950. At the request of President Curtis, the Executive Secretary summarized the new plan as follows: "At its meeting on March 4, 1949, the , Board of Directors of the Lehigh Alumni Association approved a report submitted by the late Robert S. Taylor, '95, and David M. Petty, '09, calling for a revision in the fund solicitation setup of the Association. Due to the Progress Fund campaign, the inauguration of this new program was de- ferred until the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1951, but in the meantime the Board took steps to clarify some of the technical de- tails involved in the new plan for solicita- tion. "At the request of the Board of Directors the Association's Publications Committee was asked to make a study and report on the future status of the Lehigh Alumni Bul- letin. This report, presented at the March 4, 1950 meeting of the Board, was ap- proved, and with the last obstacle removed the plan is now ready to be put into effect this July 1. "The new program as approved by the Board of Directors follows: THAT the Lehigh Alumni Association continue to undertake the solicitation and collection of the annual Alumni Fund for the benefit of the University. THAT the fund raising activities be un- der the control of the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association with the treas- urer of the University serving in an ad- visory capacity. THAT the Executive Committee of the Council of Lehigh Class Agents be re- sponsible for the solicitation and collec- tion or" the annual Alumni Fund. THAT the Alumni Fund campaign be the only annual solicitation for funds among alumni and that there be no furth- er independent collection of alumni dues. THAT checks be made payable to the Lehigh University Alumni Fund. THAT the Lehigh Alumni Bulletin con- tinue to be published as it has in the past, independent of any Alumni Fund solicitation. THAT the Alumni Student Grants fund solicitation be separate from that of the Alumni Fund. (a) Methods of raising this fund to be determined by the Board of Direc- tors and the Alumni Student Grants Collection Committee. THAT in the annual report of the Alum- ni Fund all contributors be credited by name only. THAT money derived from the Alumni Fund be allocated as follows: (a) Cost of operation of the Council of Lehigh Class Agents. (b) Cost necessary to adequately main- tain the Alumni Association, a bud- get to be prepared annually by the officers of the Association and ap- proved by the Board of Directors at its annual meeting. (c) An amount not to exceed five per cent of the Fund after expenses are deducted to be retained each year by the Alumni Association as a reserve fund until the total is $50,000. This money to be invested by, and used at the discretion of the Board of Di- rectors. (d) The net amount of the Fund will then be given to the University at the end of each fiscal year for un- restricted purposes." Alumni present observed a moment of silence in memory of Lehigh men who had died during the past year. The tellers report presented by alumnus Morris revealed that Edward A. Curtis, '25, had been reelected for another one year term as president of the Association, and that George F. A. Stutz, Jr. '22, had been named senior vice-president. Other officers elected are H. Randolph Maddox, '21, jun- ior vice-president, Hugh P. McFadden, '25, treasurer, Alfred S. Osbourne, '09, and Clifford F. Lincoln, '11, alumnus trustees. In accepting the presidency for the sec- ond time Mr. Curtis thanked those alumni who had worked with him during the past year, asked for their continued support, and pledged himself to do his utmost to strength- en all class organizations as well as to con- tinue work started last year in the develop- ment of Lehigh's Alumni clubs. President Curtis also said that he hoped the day would come soon when the entire alumni reunion program could be held on the campus with older classes renting frater- nities and the younger groups dormitories for the week-end. Prior to adjournment alumni present en- dorsed a resolution expressing their con- fidence in the work being done by President Curtis, his officers, and committee men. The meeting adjourned at 11:35 a.m. Following are the names of those who were graduated June 19, 1950 : DECltEES IN COURSE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCE Candidates were presented by Dean Robert Pattison More Bachelor of Arts: Alan Emanuel A'bramovitz, Frank Vipond Adamthwaite, Jr., James John Arthur, Rob- ert Davis Baynum, Joseph Henry Bedson, Jr., Thomas Edward Bernard, Robert Logan Bon- ham, S:alvatore Borzellino, William Rogers Breck, Jr., Charles Melcher Butterworth III, James Robert Cairns, Robert Bruce Christ, Robert Burgess Clark, Elwood Carr Cornog, Jr., Harry Joseph Crofton, Jr., Rodger Lee Daniels, Mario Raphael D'Antonio, Victor Rudolph Daub, Jr., Thomas William DeCros- ta, David Donald Degler, Floyd William Diehl, Jr., Joseph Harry Dowling.

OPEN DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM Double-Flows always operate at top efficiency because the water distribu- tion system is available. Water flow to each cell is easily regulated . . . cleaning, a matter of minutes. COLDER WATER Water falling near the louvered side walls is at near wet bulb tempera- ture. Only Double-Flow, with its cross-flow design, can give this extra- cold water. MULTIBLADED FANS Vibration and "rough operation" caused by air pulsations are prevented by the use of multibladed fans. These large rugged, multibladed fans insure longer tower life. NAIL-LESS FILLING No warped, twisted or sagged filling because filling members are free to expand and contract in a definite pat- tern. This nail-less filling has been field-proven during the past decade. jis^ NO AIR CHANNELING No "dead spots" caused by air stream- ing from small louvered openings to the fan. Full height louvered walls assure intimate air-water contact in all parts of the cooling chamber. <$ At lo Extra Price On The Marley Double- Flow A, ND, that's not all . . . you also get rugged Marley Geareducers, heart quality redwood lumber, ring con- nectors, more square feet of drift eliminators, more wetted surface per cubic feet, regulator valves on each cell, bolted compression-system diagonals with full bearing at each end, no nozzle pressure required, less pumping head, walk- ways, shiplap double wall casing and many other features. Marley research and development is continually at work bringing out new ideas — setting a higher standard for the cooling tower industry. Get these important features on your next cooling tower. They are standard on the Marley Double-Flow . . . at no extra price.

STACKHOUSE /// Part Avenue, <.;>■< i nurich, Conn Al hist we have had word of our Mexican classmate, Guadalupe L>6pez de Lara. Theodore Stevens bus for- warded to me a letter he had from de Lara's daughter, Sister Margarita T. Lopez de Lara, and I quote from it: ' 1 am Mr. Guadalupe Lopez de Lara's daughter. Some weeks ago I received a letter you wrote to my father. I ap- preciated you still remember him, but he has passed away since nine years ago, on December 20. 1940. "Maybe you would like to know something about his family. My moth- er also passed away on October 2, 19 4 4, and his four children are still living, two of them got married and two are religious. My brother Pablo is a Jesuit Father and he is in Montezume Sem- inary, New Mexico, and I am a Sister Sevant of the Blessed Sacrament." A recent letter from James Mill- holland indicates that Jim and Elsie are fine as to health and spirits, and that their interest in Lehigh and par- ticularly in 1SS6 is still bright and shining. Simon <S: Schuster brought out on May 22 a new book by Helen Howe, the daughter of our Dr. Mark Howe, and the literary departments have been carrying generous amounts of ads and reviews to bring it into public notice. It is called. "The Circle of the Day," and is the story of the ten-hour circle in the day of a fashionable New York matron who suddenly finds that the barque of her domestic world has sprung a leak and she must now de- cide whether to try to patch the leak or abandon ship. I am sending to James D. Slack, the Lehigh University librarian, two old books which have been in my posses- sion sixty years and more and which he has expressed a desire to have for the library. The one is a unique old re- ligious book. "The New Whole Duty of Man." published in London in 1750. The other is, "A Treatise on Prac- tical Surveying," by Robert Gibson, published in Baltimore in ISIS, and is a treatise and a textbook on surveying and all the mathematics pertaining thereto, which was in use a hundred and thirty years ago. On the fly leaf of this book, written in a bold, John Han- cock style, is a deed of transfer which is so unique that I quote it in full: "Know all Men by these Presents that I John Ruddle of Mauch Chunk in Northampton County, Pennsylvania, for and in consideration of the Sum of Eleven dollars to me in hand paid at and before the signing hereof the re- ceipt hereof I do hereby acknowledge have sold unto Jedediah Irish of Lau- rel Run in Lausanne Township County and State aforesaid this book entitled Gibsons Surveying together with a full case of Mathematical Instruments. Witness my hand this Twentieth day of May A.D. 1826. (Signed) John Ruddle." The Ruddle family has been prom- inent in Mauch Chunk for many years and at Lehigh University. John Ruddle graduated in 1SS3 and George Huddle graduated with my class in 1SS6, but died early in the year 1S90. The grantee of this book, Jedediah Irish, was a mining engineer who came over from England in the early days .Mill « ; i ■ i active in iIh' ' 1 1 • \ 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 hi "f the anthracite coal regions, Through I rlends ami relal Ives of his family he set i led in in\ little old home i own in spend ins lost remaining days, ami ae ;i I ii 1 1,, h.i refool ho\ I can still see .led Irish, as We called him. with other old fellows all wail Ing tor I I ml. sil I inc. ,,n the benches whittling pine slicks.

This was my boyhood library, desk and bureau, and explains how I came with this old book. euu *t two HOWARD A. FOERING ISol Nazareth Pike, Bethlehem, Pa. The Class of '90 had its last formal, and its best, reunion. We have never missed a five-year reunion. We had a 50% attendance in the parade on Alumni Day: Pratt, Litch, Sherman, Thomson, Turner, Neumeyer and Foer- ing. Our absent members were: Car- denas in Nicaragua. Duerr and Millhol- land in California: Spengler, Tonikin- son and Metzger too ill: and Schnabel present but, in an accident to Foering's car Friday night, was injured, so he had to be at St. Luke's. We missed him very much. Leading '90 in the parade were two grandsons of Sherman, and a grandson and granddaughter of Foering. We all Sixty years out. 1890' 's "last formal, and best, reunion JULY, 1 9 5 O 27 felt we had made a wonderful showing for a class 6 years out of college and should have had at least honorable mention for the Cup. When we entered college in 18 SG Lehigh had 321 students, today 2661; a teaching staff of 28, now 3 25; 210 graduates, now 12,5 50. There were no dormitories except Christmas Hall, rooming three or four students; Pack- er Hall, Library, Chemical Laboratory, Gymnasium (now the dining hall), and Christmas and Saucon Halls. How dear old Lehigh has grown! 1S90 has done what it could to help. WALTON FORSTALL 399 McClellan Dr., Pittsburgh 27, Pa. Famariss and Forstall were the only '91ers at the alumni gatherings. They sat at the 50-Plus table on Friday night and in the class of '9 6 Room at the Hotel on Saturday evening. J. Z. Mil- ler was kept away by a Rotary Con- vention. You who did not come missed a pleasant day on our beautiful cam- pus and some wonderful opportunities to see again the friends of your college days. 1S90 turned out eight men, most remarkable for a 6 0th reunion. Your correspondent salutes them and in- vites '91 to imitate next year. Rench writes that he has received a copy of the Japanese translation of his Roadway and Track. The text is entire, the index in both languages, the book well bound and printed. Probably, with our Reunion Cup, another "first" for '91. ,What other class can claim a member whose writings have been published in Japanese? The book should finally rest in the University library. 1895 won our Cup. 1S90 probably should have won it if some members had remembered to register! Next year's reunion classes take notice! In the October issue there will be some interesting facts about the Cup winners to date. T. C. RODERICK Wahkonsa Hotel, Fort Dodge, Iowa I was agreeably surprised, in a Ro- tary meeting last month, to listen to a story by a high school teacher who had as her subject a report on the activi- ties and success of the Co-op method of teaching in Port Dodge schools. As she outlined the plan of the alternate periods of actual work in the business, selected by the student and school authorities, and those of study, in the school, bearing on the problems of the business in which the student was working, it brought vividly to my mind the results of the thinking, the deci- sion and the effects of that decision, by the member of our class who first put that plan of education into being. Her- man Schneider '94. Listening to the teacher tell the story brought to my Before the Vermillion. Yank Townsend, grandson, E. A. Houston mind the old familiar illustration of the effect of dropping a stone into a pool of water with the ever widening circle of waves carrying the result of that action to places never thought of or planned for in the original effort. Of course I was pleased by the talk and naturally, like the man who was proud to shake the hand that had shak- en the hand of John L. Sullivan, told everyone I could buttonhole and get to listen that I was a classmate of Herman Schneider. How we like to bask in the sunshine of someone else's glory. Well, Herman has left his mark very distinctly in the world of applied education. Just to show you that I am not the only one who runs into something un- expected I will quote from a letter from Shep Shepherd: "Recently while on a short visit with my daughter and son-in-law at the little county seat of Tunkhannock, Pa., on the Susquehan- na River, I ran into something that took me back to Lehigh in a most un- expected manner. Stepping into the little Hotel Prince I saw in the lobby a large oil painting. It was attractive and carried a price tag. Noticing five or six others I saw a card attached to one. On reading it I found that all the paintings were the work of Robert Carlyle Barritt, Instructor in Paint- ing, Lehigh University. Shades of Pop- py Doo, Snoddy Lambert, et al." Of course Shep was surprised and his letter leaves no doubt of that fact. He further says and I again quote: "As an oldtimer who knew Lehigh as a place where frills were unknown and where elbow grease was the only path to erudition, I lift my hat to the fellow who could have sold these new ideas to the faculty guiding the destinies of Asa Packer's hoys of the lS90's." Well Shep, doggone it, do you sup- pose that for some reason unknown to us we are growing old and joining the "Old Fogy Class?" Gosh! I hope not for I feel that we are still thinking more of the future than the past, and are willing to accept the new thoughts that were foreign to us in the nineties — even pensions and social security. It was fine to have that letter from Shep and I would appreciate more from you fellows who are still active on this oblate spheroid of ours. Get out your pens or sharpen up your pencils and write. C. F. TOWNSEND. GUEST CORRESPONDENT J/05 Teviple St., New Haven, Conn. During my campaign as class agent, "Bones" Castleman asked me if I would be guest correspondent for the column in this issue of the Bulletin. So I am pinch-hitting for "Bones," but unfor- tunately I struck out. I don't know if it was the Friday eating and drinking, lack of sleep, too big a breakfast Sat- urday morning or the socks that Benny Loeb made for the class. Anyway, as I was about to give a pair of socks to Rollin Bastress, I saw vermillion and passed out. The next thing that I re- member was being transported to St. Luke's Hospital. Very much under pro- test I was put to bed, but now, after four days at St. Luke's, I don't regret the time spent there with all the at- tractive nurses and the alcohol rubs. (Oh, boy, it's alcohol externally for me from now on.) I can recommend St. Luke's — a swell place. I began to be- lieve that the damsels thought I was Bob Hope or "Bones" Castleman by the attention I received. So much for your class agent. It was a hell-uv-a Re- union as far as I am concerned, es- pecially after joshing some of the fel- lows for their inability to "take it." As to the real Class Reunion, I have 28 THE ALUMNI BULLETIN to rel) on "Bones" and Benny Loeb'a report that thej gave Sundaj when mi.- to \ Isll me .11 i he Hospital.

Then there was the dedication of the new gymnasium and in the evening the dinner at the Hotel Bethlehem in the University Room. With our class and the 50-Plus men. there were over fifty present. All hut Bartholomew, Kappella and Eden of our class attended the dinner, which was a huge success — it becomes more so every year and next year will out- trow the University Room. I believe "Bones" Castleman represented the class agent in a speech with his usual oratorical eloquence. So. all in all. it was the best Reunion we have ever had. I hope to really enjoy the next one in an upright position and full of pep — just as I am now. I have turned over to the Lehigh Alumni Fund $50.00 from our class treasury. Regards to all. P.S. Don't get the impression that I was in the alcoholic ward at the Hos- pital. I wasn't. I had a private room and had only a slight case of exhaus- tion, which could happen to anyone. <*&** ^ tZ97 JAMES H. PENNINGTON Coopersburg, Pa. I received a card from John Shep- pard, staying for a week or so at Charleston at the beach. He had stop- ped to see Schwecke, '98, who lives in Charleston, retired. He sent me a rath- er unusual card. It shows two streets, crossing at right angle, called the cor- ner of four laws: a church on one cor- ner, called the law of God; a post office on another corner, called the Federal law; a county courthouse on the third, called State law, and the city hall on the fourth corner, called City law. Some of you, familiar with Charleston, perhaps know all about this, but untraveled as I am it is en- tirely new to me. I also have a nice letter from Hookie Baldwin, at Schenectady. It was writ- ten in March, but ho says thai the snow has almoi I one and he will soon go out riding, He says thai he will be only :.'■ in' .i \..\ ember I te is. i here lore, only one of those kids I enjoj discussing, ai on.' i inic. ?:, was con Idered a ripe old a ;e.

I am located not near the water, Inn 1 look up and down the slreel every morning and never see any fish l hat hie, coming along. I also have a letter from Nachod, who lolls an anecdote about Yates. N'achod says that in a class on dynamo design. Professor Maefarlane asked Teece a question on the subject, which Teece apparently did not hear, and he replied. "On account of the magnetic inertia embedded in the slots." Nachod says that it is strange he should re- member those words of more than fifty years ago, as they made no sense what- ever, while the class laughed Teece down. The net result appeared to be only that much more worry for Pro- fessor Maefarlane. who took it all very seriously. There were exactly three '97 men at the reunion. They were Hale, Penning- ton and Yates. We had an even 5 at the B.E.Y. Club dinner. 1895 took its 5 5th anniversary dinner with us. Yank Towiisond was the class agent who manipulated affairs for '9 5. and did a fine job. We'll have to admit that '95 displayed very fine table manners and behaved in a gentlemanly way throughout. I attended my first commencement in 5 3 years, and certainly was impress- ed by the difference between this one and our own. There were 514 in the graduating class this year and only 131 in our own class. I remember very lit- tle of our own graduation. I know that I got a diploma — I remember that — and am reminded of how little I de- served it as it looks down upon me from the wall of my room. Yet we were quite sure that we had the world by the tail, just as the boys feel today — until they look for a job. There was no placement bureau to help us in those days, and I felt that I certainly had the world by the tail when I started to work at $2.65 per week. College boys in our day were not wanted. I rented my cap and gown for $1.25. I don't know where I got the one twenty five. Perhaps some of you bought your own outright. If you did you were more lavish with your pennies than I could be. eCeu* *i ?X9X HENRY T. BORHEK 30 Wall Street, Bethlehem, Pa. W. S.

To para phrase a well known slogan— "It sal isfies." Getting on with the news. Percy Reed sent me a postal card saying that he will again spend the summer on Cape Cod, returning to Lake Worth, Fla., late in September. His present address is Mayflower Heights, Prov- incetown, Mass. Daggett sent me a postal card dated May 10, saying that the weather in El- mira had been bad and that he had been struggling with a severe cold and at the time had no thoughts of fishing. He expected a call from Davey Child* on May 2 5 when he passed through El- mira on his way to Buffalo, N. Y. Cy Roper on May 8 wrote that he had no news of interest. Also said, "We are having the most glorious weather, you know, the kind that gives you the Spring Fever." We could have used a lot of that glorious weather in Bethlehem, since even now, June 19, we have had very little warm weather — in fact, most of the weather has been vile or worse. Our Dominie, The Reverend Martin Stockett, wrote that he had been very busy during Lent and the Easter sea- son as assistant to a parish in the sub- urbs, working as much as his physical condition permitted. I did not know that he had again been seriously ill, but a severe attack of heart trouble last January has left him in such a condition that he probably will not be able to spend the summer at his camp in Maine. He sends his best regards to all of us and regrets that he did not feel able to join the 50-plus crowd in June. An interesting letter from Frank Kneas arrived too late for mention in the June class letter. Here are some extracts — "As for me, I still enjoy ac- tive practice in the engineering taught at Lehigh. Last year I was granted Patent 2477256 on Cantilever System of Floor Framing, which has been used on a score of buildings to date and is being still further developed. Have a small group of assistants, including one from Lehigh. Please extend my cordial greetings to our classmates." Some weeks ago I was pleasantly surprised by a telephone call from Frank, who was passing thru Bethle- hem and called me from the local bus station.

Every- thing there, condensed to a mere spot, but ready to be brought back full size with all its features intact. For photography can reduce tremendously without losing a detail. As a business or professional man, you can utilize photography's reducing ability in any of many important ways. You can utilize it to save space ... to speed reference. With Recordak microfilming, you can "debulk" files 99% . . . keep the records at hand for quick viewing, full size, in a Recordak Reader. You can utilize photography to make sales pres- entations more complete, more resultful.

Only a suggestion . . . this ... of what photog- raphy can do because it is able to condense. And because it has many other unique characteristics as well, photography is becoming an increasingly important tool all through science, business, and manufacturing.

The books were selected by Pro- fessor Sherman and Chaplain Bean, and he hoped that they would be of as- sistance in improving religious life at Lehigh. Frank said that Paul Starkey's gifts to Lehigh for the furtherance of religious education were the inspira- tion for these gifts of books. W. C. Hare wrote that he has be- come adjusted to the change from west to east and that the winter had passed without his having had any colds. He thought he might come to Bethlehem for Alumni Day. but as things turned out. he was not present. In fact, I was the only representative of our class at the alumni dinner Friday evening and at the luncheon on Saturday. Jack Gass, who has been a regular atten- dant at the alumni weekend for many years, was among the missing, as were Herbie Hess and Howard Wiegner. At the Friday evening dinner I was seated beside Ford Carman, '99. with George Home, also '9 9. alongside Car- man. It was very pleasant to be with men of about the same age and period at Lehigh and I enjoyed their company very much. My wife went with me to the lunch- eon on Saturday and we enjoyed meet- ing many of the oldtimers. also the younger men who come back year after year for this day. The weather on Alumni Day was fine, in contrast to the downpour which drenched the paraders last year, and the reunion classes made a fine show- ing. Since the July Bulletin will give a full report of all that took place. I'll not waste space or time trying to give an account of all that went on. At this time I still have a few let- ters to answer but by the time you read this I hope to have cleared up all back correspondence. So with best wishes to all of you, and a vacation from writing a class letter for several months. I joyfully close up shop. 0Uu4 o£ J900 Only seven of the 2 6 living members of our Class were able to return for our golden reunion anniversary, but we more than made up in spirit what we lacked in numbers. One of the first to arrive Friday afternoon was Mike Honan, who seldom misses a reunion if he is in the vicinity of South Moun- tain. Mike joined the rest of our class- mates at the Association's dinner Fri- day night in Grace Hall where we had the place of honor, and were intro- duced to all assembled alumni by the toastmaster. Saturday a few of us tour- ed the campus and relived again the old familiar scenes. Although Lehigh has changed a great deal since our un- dergraduate days, the old nostalgia was still there. Saturday afternoon after the alumni luncheon we formed for the parade and marched to Taylor stadium where we saw the Class of 1895 win the reunion trophy for having the largest percent- age registered. Later in the afternoon, after a brief rest, we reassembled at the Hotel Bethlehem for our reunion dinner. Naturally, the talk revolved around our absent classmates, those who have gone, and those who could not get back. It was an interesting eve- ning, and one which we will remember for a long time. Those who participated in activity during the week included Mike Honan, John Lelbflied, Fred GrolV (whose son was celebrating his L 5th reunion), Ken McComas, \l Hollingsworth, Mm Bick- er t, ami John Van Duyne.

HARLEMAN i in Wr.nU ii si . Bethlehem. Pa The history of 8 Lehigh class is writ- ten more clearly in the hearts of iis members than in formal records, anil nothing reduced lo writing can ever convey the full warmth and affection of 'im for our one-time classmate James Hamilton < hickcHnj;, who pass- ed away May 6, 1950, at his home in Oil City, Pa. Just recently I received a wonderful letter from his son Kenton, '28, Who had attended some of our reunions with his late father, and I am going to quote from it in part: "With the ar- rival of each issue of the Alumni Bul- letin it has become my custom to turn to the page with your column of news about the class of '01 . . . He was very proud of it and had a sincere affection for his fellow classmates. From the time I was a small boy I've heard dad tell about his never to be forgotten as- sociations at Lehigh with Cad Evans, Tom Girdler, Slim Wilson, Blondie Donaldson and yourself, as well as nu- merous others of his class. During my four years at Lehigh it was my pleas- ure to meet many of you. In 1926, along with Chuck Barba and a few others. I marched in the Alumni Day parade as one of the sons of 1901. In recent years your column has more and more frequently told of the pass- ing of another classmate. Those an- nouncements have always borne news I regretted to hear. The names were of men I felt I knew, even though several I had never actually met in person. They were men I respected — they were dad's friends and classmates. In read- ing of these men I came to dread some- what the day I would read the name of my own dad — I just hoped that day would be a long way off. But now, Mr. Harleman, you'll have to add his name to the list — dad passed away on May 6. Enclosed is an article from the May 6 issue of the Oil City Derrick and an editorial from the May 8 issue of the same newspaper. There is not much I can add except to say that dad was spared prolonged suffering — he just slept peacefully away. God was merci- ful and we were thankful." The foregoing is really the finest letter it has been our good fortune to receive in many years and I am sure that Chick's classmates will be as glad to read it as I was to receive it. For more than 3 years prior to his retire- ment in 1930 Chick served in an of- ficial capacity with Oil Well Supply Co., Oil City, Pa. He was one of the most active and prominent members JULY, 1 9 5 O 31 of the Masonic fraternity in north- western Pennsylvania, and in 1929, 19 30 and 1931 served as grand com- mander of the Grand Commandery. Knights Templar of Pennsylvania. He was a devout member of Christ Epis- copal Church in Oil City, served as ves- tryman and senior warden of the par- ish, and was a member of the execu- tive council of the Erie diocese. He served his community well and gave unsparingly of his time and energy for civic betterment. He was particularly active in the work of the Oil City hos- pital and at one time was president of the hospital board. A man of the high- est integrity and character, his life and actions were ever an example of worthy and righteous living. He is sur- vived by his wife and four children — Kenton, '28, of Dallas, Tex.; Mrs. C. F. Bucks, Jr., Washington, D. C; Edwin S., '35, Maxwell Airforce Base, Ala., and James H. Jr., Baltimore, Md. He was a member of Chi Psi frater- nity and a track devotee. A grand fel- low, his classmates will surely miss him. To his bereaved family we extend our sincerest sympathy. Our class was pretty well represent- ed at the Alumni Reunion June 16-17. We had the pleasure of visiting with "Prex" Girdler, Cad Evans, Herb Stauffer and Charlie McGonigle. The latter received one of the Alumni As- sociation's Special Awards for his long- time interest in and support of Lehigh. Plans for our fiftieth reunion in June 1951 were discussed and you will hear more about them in the fall. At the re- union we are going to deliver our Yen loving cup to the class of '51 and ask their president to see that the cup is transferred to 20 01 when '51 has its 50th reunion. I am sure Pop Penninj;- ton of '9 7 cannot think up a better plan than that to keep his class before the alumni 5 years hence. gUte 04 1904 E. LOU FARABAUGH 1028 West Market St., Bethlehem, Pa. When June 1.6 rolled around this year and the trek to Bethlehem began, it was surprising to note how the class of 1904 had fallen so low. Of course there had been little or no effort made to arouse the old folks, except by one Charles Lueders, M.D., of Philadelphia, who returned and brought his quota with him. After all, it is difficult for me to determine whe- ther or not we, who did attend, were pleased or disappointed as we sat down to a banquet at the Bethlehem Steel Club in Hellertown, the reason being that had there been more in atten- dance the ration of champagne would have been lessened in proportion. The basis for this extravagance re- sulted from an anonymous check sent by a generous classman who rarely forgets but was unable to be present on account of illness in his family. A rousing toast to him was in order, es- pecially at the height of the festivi- ties, while a roast was tendered to those living in the immediate vicinity of Bethlehem who, like those described by St. Luke in "The parable of a great supper" for various reasons (though somewhat more modern) pled, "I pray hold me excused," which of course we were quite willing to do. Lester Bernstein of Los Angeles, Charles Lueders and Stone Edelen of Philadelphia, Clint Bloss and Mike Jones of Allentown, were on hand with the writer and the party became quite lively. Presiding Officer Frank Sinn was here for the alumni dinner on Friday night to receive the Special Award of the Alumni Association but was forced to return home immediately afterward. A card was received from Warren C. MacFarlane who is in Italy, and also one from Bill Cram, who is sojourning in Switzerland. A note from Paul H. Herman, 109 Raleigh Dr., Virginia Beach, Va., who states a sensation of rejuvenation re- turned when he read that "Didn't We Ramble" song about the Lehigh foot- ball team of 1902 in the Bulletin. He also described a get-together of him- self and General Phil Torrey, also on that team, at which they had great fun discussing the Lafayette and Navy games of 19 2. Am glad that through the efforts of Whit Tnnstall, '03, we were success- ful in uncovering the whereabouts of Paul, and come our next reunion we hope to have this trusty end join the party. Ever faithful Tom Kelly, of 317 W. Prospect St., Seattle, Wash., sent his heartfelt good wishes and a handclasp to those returning to our 46th. Of course we all missed Tom, but he was remembered in the remarks by all who partook of the contents of the goblets. After a final visit to the Saucon Val- ley Country Club for a look at some ol the reunion classes, the party disband- ed, all content that they had enjoyed the weekend to the utmost. et«4* °4 1905 WILLIAM H. LESSER 1S22 Myrtle Bt., Hcranton, Pa. It will he interesting to those of you who did not attend the reunion party to know that it was a distinct success - around thirty men were present. Pop Klein received the medal for com- ing the greatest distance — he lives in California. We just missed getting the cup for the greatest percentage of the official class list in attendance. The class was honored when, at the alumni dinner Friday night. Mike Kuryla received a citation from the Alumni Association for having made noteworthy contributions toward the welfare of the University. Yes, 1905 ranks high in post-graduate honors; three of our men have been granted honorary degrees, and now Mike gets a citation for distinguished service. Many favorable comments were made by oldtimers regarding the fine showing we made in the alumni pa- rade. We got ready for it in Dutchy Ringer's classroom and you can imag- ine what we were thinking about while there. Each parader carried a brown and white umbrella on which was pin- ned a small 19 05 banner. After the parade we went to the home of Bill Estes in Saucon Valley, where a snack was served by the ever gracious and charming Mrs. Estes. Here Nick Funk took some pictures, some men bowled, and others just sat around. The festivities were closed at a din- ner in the Saucon Valley Country Club, w hen each man told about himself and Dinner at Saucon Valley ended festivities for 1905 32 THE ALUMNI BULLETIN / en returned for an 08 off-year gathering his family. You know, it is remarkable to hear of how many men in the class have retired and how many expect to retire daring the next couple of years. The committee on arrangements lakes this opportunity to thank those men who attended the party. Bill Estes and Nick Funk were complimented highly by those present for the great work they did in connection with the affair. Henry Clay, as usual, collected the dues. A tine and glorious time was had by all and the party broke up with the hope that in 1955 a bigger and better reunion will eventuate. gUt* o£ 7907 JOHN A. BRODHEAD 7 Brookside Ave., Greenfield, Mass. Pete Mayer, in retirement, spent about six months in blissful Florida. Daytona Beach. He was there from September 15. 1949 to late March of this year.

In the April issue of the Bulletin I reported the names of eleven '0 7 men listed in the 1947 issue of the Lehigh Alumni Directory with no addresses, fellows that I do not have on my cor- respondence list. I asked for informa- tion about them and in response re- ceived word about E. h. Pattison. In the hope that some of you may know the whereabouts of one or more of the other ten men I'm repeating the list: Joseph Sandorf, Frederick Hurst, Rev- erdy Jones, C. T. Kriebel, Alfred Law- son, Levin A. Moore, Elmer Shaffer, Hush Steele, Randolph Yossberg and Joseph Waddill. If anyone has infor- mation, please pass it on to me. Just before mailing copy, I received a note from Doc Carlock telling about the Alumni Award given him at the Friday night alumni banquet at Beth- lehem. There were seven Alumni Awards in all and in all probability there will be a write-up about them and their recipients in the main part of the Bulletin. Congratulations, Doc! upon this high honor in recognition of your years of distinguished personal achievement and of outstanding service to Lehigh. ^^44 o/ ?90X LEWIS HECK S.' t 21 Northampton St., N.

Ten in all were back — Baer, Brothers, Daubenspeck, Donegan, Fair, Hollister, Kraemer, McCann, Schafer, and Spaeth. The Saturday night dinner was at the Olde Mill. Centre Valley, and was most successful. Mac did not report whether Jim Fair had his two- gun bandit with him. The picture shows all present except Donegan. Mac took the trouble to figure out the total round-trip mileage of those who came back, and including Kraem- er's flight from Atlanta the total came in a trifle over 8200 miles, which Shows that they really wanted I" be nti hand.

Harvey liasslcr was killed in an au- tomobile accident on .March 14 while driving with Dr. Rudolph Hommel, who also died a few days later from in- juries. Bassler probably had more de- grees than any other member of the class, beginning with B.E. from Al- bright in 1903, E.M. in 1908, M.S. from Albright in 1909, Ph.D. from Hopkins in 1913, and ending with D.Sc. from Lehigh in 1945. He had re- tired some time ago from his long ca- reer with the American Museum of Natural History in New York. He was one of the brightest and hardest work- ing members of the class in undergrad- uate days. While he had not actively participated in class reunions or sim- ilar matters, he had recently assured Daubenspeck that he hoped to come back for some future reunion. It is understood that he planned to leave his valuable library to the University. glcut o£ ?9?0 HOWARD M. FRY Franklin and Marshall College Lancaster, Pa. At this writing the fortieth reunion of the class of 1910 is history. We had a most enjoyable time. Despite the fact that we did not get the flag for the class having the largest attendance, we outdistanced the class receiving it by at least ten percent. The unfortunate part about this is that in order to get credit, registration, according to the rules of the Alumni Association, must be in the hands of the registration committee by 1:00 P.M. Saturday. Fourteen members of our class, who were there at that time, failed to regis- er. According to the Alumni Associa- tion annual business meeting report, date June 17, the class of 1910 has 86 members. To this, of course, must be added a number of names of members of our class who were at Lehigh for at least one year. That would bring the total up to about 110. The total num- ber of members of the class who at- tended the banquet at the Saucon Val- ley Country Club was 49. or 57%; while 49 out of 110 represents 44.5 JULY, 1 9 5 O 33 percent. Both of these percentages are above the thirty-nine percent of the class of 189 5. From the above in- formation it behooves us, when we re- turn for our 45th reunion, to get the registration cards turned in on time. We will see in another section of the Bulletin that Dr. Grace and Dr. Whit- aker both reported on the state of the college at the banquet on Friday eve- ning. Many members of the class of 1910 were greatly pleased with this innovation. We hope this will be con- tinued. There were present at the dinner on Friday evening 2 8 members of our class; at the alumni luncheon 51 mem- bers; and at the reunion banquet at the Saucon Valley Country Club 49 members. Your correspondent wishes to ex- press his appreciation for the untiring efforts of George F. R. Bahnson ("Pet- er" to those of us who know him very well) and his local committee for a bang-up good job. Not only did they make excellent arrangements for our activities, and for a very pleasant din- ner for the ladies at Hotel Bethlehem on Saturday evening, but also financed the reunion in such a way that it was possible to present a nice check to the Alumni Fund. Our thanks go to Sammy Croll, Car- vill Gorman, Harvey Pierce, Ray Stritz- inger and Bob Swope for a pleasant social hour before the Saturday eve- ning dinner. The class picture was taken on the steps of the library, and all members present are going to receive copies of this work of art, which appears on this page. We were supplied with a great many address changes, and early in the fall there will be a completely revised list of members of the great class of 1910. The new list, when completed, will show the addresses of Charley Shaff- ner, Bill Landis, Spencer Shaffer, Tom Rees, Syd Peverley, Jim Kalbach, and Charlie Dunn. We regretfully report the- death of L. L. Ditmars as of February 24, 19 50. William Donkel, Harold Simpson, Lou- is Sturgis and In Young also died this year. We missed Myrl Jacobs, Caleb Kenny and Charlie Gosztonyi at this reunion, but their past interest and activity in the class has been so instilled in all of us that their presence will be forever felt. The following members were in at- tendance during the parade: Bahnson, Bingham, Bright, Bryant, Crocker, Croll, Dailey, N. M. Downs, Eder, Floyd, Fry, Gilmore, Gorman, Heard, Heilman, Houck, Kalbach, Kemmer, Killough, Koplin, Lantz, Lawrence, Lawson, Levan, Mathews, More, Page, Pearsall, Peters, Petty, Peverley, Pierce, Poole, Rees, Rhodes, Sasscer, Shinier, Stubbs, Street, Stritzinger, Swope, Thayer, Tresler, Van Blarcom, Waltz, Wiley, H. Zane. Fifty-one members of 1910 present at Saturday luncheon A nice letter from S. P. Hess arrived recently, in which he states in part: "I finally landed in sales, like many other mechanical engineers. Have been associated with the Detroit Steel Prod- ucts Co., Detroit, Mich., since 1912; sales manager, Spring Division since 1937. "I was in hopes one of my two sons, now married, would turn mechanical and enter Lehigh. However, Samuel chose Amherst as his Alma Mater; Robert chose Denison while Mary fav- ored Syracuse, and they are very hap- py over their respective selections. "I get to see our classmate, C. G. Heilman. regularly. He is in the heat- treat business here. "Enjoy reading your 1910 column in the Bulletin, thus keeping in touch with other members of our class." We regret to report that on June 21, 19 50, just four days after our 40th reunion, Edward J. Dailey died of a heart attack. In a short note from Jake Bright to me, dated the day after Ed's death, he wrote, "It was good to have seen him, and for all of us it may be later than we think." JOHN O. LIEBIG !,1 N. 5th Street, Allentown, Pa. We congratulate the class of 1914 on having almost one-third of the members back for an off-year reunion that we have for a five-year reunion. We have not consulted the alumni of- fice records, but we make a guess that this is at least close to a record. On deck were Schrampel, Commo- dore Kavanaugh, Xordenholt, Quast, Weber, Rosenbaum and your corres- pondent, together with others who were too bashful to let us know where they were hiding. As usual, we had a letter from Xeff, and in it he stated that Charlie Heil- man, '10, was returning for the re- union. We will have to convert some of our class into this off-year reunion idea. Does Lehigh WISH TO CREATE THE LEHIGH SPIRIT OF THE DOC DRINKER DAYS? gut* *t ?9is WILLIAM H. KELCHNER ■53/3 Sylvester St., Philadelphia 24, Pa. The thirty-fifth reunion of the class of 1915 has become a matter of his- tory! To those of us who were priv- ileged to gather together once more among the ivy covered buildings of our Alma Mater and talk of days of yore, walk the old familiar paths, and gaze on familiar sights and the many changes that have taken place, this an- niversary will long be a cherished memory. From the time we arrived at the Ho- tel Bethlehem on Friday afternoon and shook hands with Lew Wright, until we said "so long" to Mr. & Mrs. Gus Wiegand in the lobby of the Traylor in Allentown on Sunday morning, there was not one dull moment. Even the weather man was on our side, and turned out three beautiful sunshiny days — and not too warm, either. Lew and your correspondent left in good time for the alumni dinner in Grace Hall on Friday evening. Arriv- ing there we found Bo Bodine, looking extremely well, at the Speakers' table ready to perform as toastmaster. From that vantage point we gazed down in the direction of the '15 table and there assembled were Bill Pugh — all the way from Canada — Skipper Raine from West Virgina, Pinkey Read from near- by Coopersburg, Gus Wiegand, Jer- myn, Pa., Dee DeHuff, Lebanon, Pa., Cy Tanner and Walt Berg from Pitts- 34 THE ALUMNI BULLL1IN ^ii>i one dull moment for 1913 or ten accompanying spouses burgh, and Barry Crichton from West- liold. N. .1. The complete story of the alumni dinner will lie found on other pages of the Bulletin. Special mention, how- ever, must be made of Bosey Reiter's address. To those of us who knew him years ago and have listened to his elo- quence many times, it was a thrill — the high spot of the reunion — when in conclusion he was inspired to recite "Only the Game Fish Swim Up Stream" witli all the fire and vigor he was wont to display thirty-five years ago. Saturday morning found us on the campus. After registration we strolled down to Grace Hall for a bite of lunch and there milling around with the crowd we found a lot more classmates. All hands gathered at Packer Hall for costumes and thence to the library steps where the class picture was tak- en, after which we fell in line for the parade, which started exactly on time and wound up on the athletic field where services dedicating the new gym were held. Inspection of the building followed. The wives, and there were ten of them, then drove to 407 Center Street with their husbands where Pat and Mrs. Pazzetti entertained in their de- lightful home — cocktails, etc. The wives then left for the Steel Club where Mrs. Pat and Mrs. Pinkey Read had arranged an excellent dinner and a general good time, while we moved on to the Saucon Valley Country Club where Pat and Pinkey had arranged everything. A splendid dinner — a very good attendance — and everything else perfect. Joining us at dinner there were the following members of the class of 1914 — Kavanangh, Liebig, Nordenholt, Quast and Walt Schreni- pel. It was a great pleasure to see those boys again. And finally, summing up the whole thing — it was a grand affair and we missed all of you who could not get there. Why not begin to plan now for our fortieth — it may not be too early. The complete list of those present is as follows: Berg, Blank, Bodinc, Brockman, Brown, Cranmer, Crichton, DeHuff, Gfeyer, Humphrey, Kelclmer, Madden, Pazzetti. Piigh, Raine, Bead, Tanner, Vanncinan, Wiegand, Wills, Wright. eCcut of t920 HERBERT A. DAVIES 152 Market St., Paterson 1, N. J. Just a few impressions of '20's "Thirtieth."

After the "Cancha" or floor has been duly prepared and hardened, six or more horses.firmly yoked, circle around and around at a brisk trot, — tied to the pole. Sometimes a burro or a mule was tied next to the pole because of the animal's slower pace. This continuous circling and stamping of hoofs, loosened the grain from the chaff which was then removed. It is said that bread made of this wheat had a very spe- cial flavor. * * * In the old days, weary, tired horses, walking round and round the center pole, were a colorful spectacle as they threshed out the grain with their hoofs. But, fortunately, this wasteful, slow and unsanitary method of thresh- ing has been replaced by modern methods and modern machines that get all the crop, thoroughly clean the chaff and straw from the kernels and save time, labor and expense. Minneapolis-Moline has pioneered in developing these efficient modern machines for gathering, threshing, separating and cleaning all the crop speedily and at low cost. MM Harvesters — the 69, G4, and the latest Self-Propelled — gently and thoroughly thresh and clean all the grains and beans without cracking them . . . keep grain from bunching in front and sides on rolling land ... do a superior job in heavy crops, in down grain, in light stands and in practically every kind of crop. Development of these quality built, dependable MM Har- vesters has aided the growth of agriculture in farm areas throughout the world, making it possible to provide greater quantity and better quality of food, fibre and food oils for the world's increasing population.

On the way out of Washington, we stopped for a short visit with Mrs. Arthur Oehm. Since the end of the war. Ralph Hartzell has been back in his home town of Muncy. Topsy is with the State Employment service where, "I occa- sionally feel I've done something use- ful." Knowing Topsy. I suspect that the occasions of usefulness are many. Bevan, as a correspondent you're a flop! (Of course, who are you to talk, Hicks, so are you.) Anyway, Instead of his dropping me a line with the news, I had to discover by reading their ads that this spring the regular monthly Alumni Bulletin advertise- ment of the J. G. Wilson Corp. stopped reading "L. Bevan. '21, Asst. to Presi- dent" and began to read "L. Bevan, '21. President." Congratulations, Bev. Mac Hall writes that their younger son John has been accepted by Lehigh for admission next September. He also asks — looking at the picture on page 5 of the April Bulletin. "Who is the handsome gentleman and scholar at the far end of the table?" Shipherd, stand up and take a bow. and pass Mac a quarter. The Indianapolis News of May 13 carried an article on J. W. Morgan as the new head of the state's largest coal mining company. Eb joined the Ayr- shire Collieries Corp. as vice president and general manager last August, com- ing from the Truax-Traer Coal Co. of Chicago. The article traces his career in some detail and states that*he and .Mrs. Morgan are at present living at the Marott Hotel in Indianapolis. A note from Mike Schrader reminds me that it is only — not x shopping days till Christmas, but one year till our 30th reunion, and that the Barn at Flickinger's is all set, ready, and waiting for us. The Alumni weekend served up just about perfect weather and we had an unusually large representation — Bev- an. Billinger, Ettelman (his son grad- uated this year), Farrington, Heilig- maii, Maddox, Kiebc, Robinson, Ship- herd and Willard; can't recall when we had anything like eleven in an off year. Bev said he saw Eb Morgan re- cently and Randy told me to count on Harry Yeide to help him represent Washington next year. Told Bevan I had already needled him — see fourth paragraph — and he explained that it had happened with practically no ad- vance notice and he had been just too busy since to send in a note. So I pro- nounced a benediction and all is now sweetness and light. TRUMAN W. ESHBACH 7130 S. Jeffery Ave., Chicago .'i'J, Illinois This winds up the year and I have about exhausted all the members with questionnaires. I am now scratching my weary skull trying to analyze how or what we will do for class notes for the next three years, so if anyone has any ideas I will certainly be grateful for suggestions. A recently returned questionnaire and letter from Steve (Beefsteak) Bes- semer tells us that he is married, has three children and that he is a grand- father. His son Gregory (IS) is a seni- or in Alameda High School and is pres- ident of the student body. As for "BeefBteak," be is Inspector of engi- neering materials, U, s. Navy, San Francisco, Calif.

"Then not much doing till summer of 1949, last summer, when good old Billy Sheridan, the wrestling coach, was out here and the Northern Cali- fornia Lehigh Club hosted him, and the next day Kurtz and myself took him around and showed him a few places. However, good old reliable Billy wouldn't give a sq. ft. of the Le- high campus for an acre in California. I think the class owes a moment's thanks to Kurtz of '23 for his hospi- tality, Thank you. "Then last summer or spring of 1949, the VP of the school was here and we again had a get-together, this time a gang of about 24, but only two of '23.

He is married, has one daughter who is married and attend- ing the University of Melbourne, Aus- tralia, and two sons. He writes further that occasionally he meets "Handy" Handwerk. Incidentally, his daughter, Elizabeth, met Jack Osborn from Mel- bourne, while he was studying for his Ph.D. at Lehigh and they were mar- ried in Packer Chapel in August of 1948. His oldest son, Stephen, is ex- pecting to enter Princeton next Fall. Jimmy, the youngest son, is attending Liberty High. Eddie Hardcastle resides in Hagers- town, Md., and is an instructor of vocational electricity in the local high school. Don Wight is married and has two children.

Charlie frequently meets with Jim Kennedy, Cliff Brad- ley and Cork O'Keefe. It would be a real pleasure to hear from Cork, giv- ing us some of his experiences. A short note from Jimmy Wentz who, as you will remember, is located at Ft. Myers, Fla., tells us he is mar- ried and has two children. His son, Jim, graduated from Hobart in June of 1949 and his daughter, Sonya Wentz Owen, attended Stetson Uni- versity. Jimmy is farming winter veg- etables and raising poultry and has been in Florida for ten years. He states it is a wonderful place to live. His favorite hobby is "plug casting for tarpon, the acme of fishing during the run." J. H. Van Ness is president of Van Ness Brothers, Inc. in Paterson, N. J., manufacturers of paper boxes.

Ed Van Keiiren was recently ap- pointed commanding officer of the Edgewood Arsenal, Edgewood, Md. On or about the 30th of April the Department of Army announced a list of promotions to the grade of perma- nent Colonel and by this time Ed has been awarded his Eagles, that is if the Adjutant General has gotten a- round to issuing the orders. Colonel Van Keuren has been on active duty with the Army since 19 42 and was integrated into the Regular Army in November of 1947. Ed and his wife have two children — a son at the Mil- itary Academy, West Point, 2nd Class, and his daughter was gradudated in June of this year and entering Fern Sem. Ed felt that since he had not received a questionnaire he was being over- looked. Certainly too damn bad a lot more of you birds don't feel the same way and write me, because I am cer- tainly not going to overlook anyone intentionally.

A note from our president, Jimmy Kennedy, advises that he attended a- long with six other members of '2 3 the L-in-Life dinner on April 2 6 at the Commodore Hotel in New York at which time Ray Stritzinger, President of Continental Baking Co., was award- ed his L-in-Life before a gathering of several hundred Lehigh men. A very representative crowd from our class included Ed Snyder, Bill Davis, Jr., Cork O'Keefe, Tommy "Squarehead" Thompson, Jim "Doc" Underwood and Cliff Bradley. To start off the fall season I have a, very interesting letter from Eddie Coxe which space prohibits me from incorporating in this month's column. This winds it. up lor another year.

Anybody in the class like horror sto- ries? There is a double-jointed clilly about torture in the fifth chapter of the Book of Deuteronomy It is a story about some people who were ordered to make bricks without straw and, failing to measure up, they were given exquisite torment and torture de luxe by their task-masters. I refer to this Biblical story because I am recalling that on a night last June at the banquet marking the 25th reunion of our class, President Freddy Rogers asked for a show of hands of those who would promise to write this year at least one letter to help the class correspondent in writing the class letter for the Bulletin. There was a veritable forest of hands around the room. So, I took the job. Now at the conclusion of a year I ask, "Mr. President, pray tell, where are those letters?" Making bricks without straw is a dead cinch compared to writing about classmates from whom one nev- er hears. Surely there are many interesting things to be said of the members of our class. They have in numerous in- stances made a noticeable impress up- on many aspects of American life. Even the names of classmates run the alphabetical gamut from Abel (George J. of Diehl Manufacturing) to Ziegen- fuss (Charles E. of Bell Telephone). Members of our class are to be found ROUNDS.

"If I'd Known You Were Comin'. I'd Have Baked a Cake" — and what a cake '25 baked! Dressed as Singing Rakers, with the "Best Band in the Land." the class won the Petty Flag by popular demand, assisted in break- ing the champagne bottle over the new gymnasium, and showed the other classes at Saucon Valley Country Club How to Celebrate a Twenty-fifth. It all started Friday afternoon with golf at the country club and informal cocktails on the terrace afterwards. Then the scene shifted to Grace Hall on Old South Mountain for the annual banquet. Gene Grace spoke for the trustees. Dr. Whitaker gave his "State of the Nation" report on the Univer- sity. The class of '25 presented £2,500 to the University in honor of its silver anniversary. The Glee Club sang while pictures were shown of the Lehigh Music Festival, and with the strains of the Alma Mater still ringing in their ears, the class then wandered down the hill to the Hotel Bethlehem to reminisce over "old silver goblets." Next day, fortified with black coffee for the climb up the hill, a few made the Annual Meeting, and were joined at noon by the others for the annual buffet luncheon. The cool and cloud- less day made everyone eager for the parade, a tremendous success, and then on to Saucon Valley for the din- ner.

The Back-Every-Year Club reports a most successful Alumni Day week- end. It began with the Alumni Asso- ciation Banquet on Friday evening. A number of the members of our class attended it and learned of the present status of the University from Presi- dent Whitaker. Saturday began with dubious weath- er for a day outdoors, but it cleared in the morning and there was a sun- ny, delightfully cool day. After the business meeting of the Alumni Asso- ciation that was held in the Packard auditorium, the alumni had luncheon in Grace Hall. This was an ideal set- ting to wander around and meet old friends from '2 6 and other classes. On May first Joe Jackson, our class president, appointed a committee to prepare plans for our Twenty-Fifth Reunion next year. Joe requested that members of this committee who would return to Lehigh this year meet with him directly after the Parade of Re- union Classes. The following men met JULY. 1 9 5 O 39 with Joe in the student engineering- societies' lounge in Packard Labora- tory: Fouchaux, Fraivillig, Griesemer, Hunter, Huyette, Jennings, Kear, Lar- amy, LeVan, Linck, Long, Maxwell, McFarlan, and Osborn. Joe appointed a nominating committee composed of all of our class presidents: Hoffman, Bond, Maxwell, and Jackson. Then the Twenty-Fifth Reunion was discussed. This is the big reunion of every class, and efforts are always made to make it the big reunion of all reunions. Joe appointed a commit- tee to take care of each one of the following items: — the reunion as a whole; dinner arrangements; speak- ers; parade; stunts at the Friday a- lumni association banquet; Saturday afternoon on the campus; collection of $2,500 for the University; ques- tionnaire and class history; and la- dies' entertainment. The class will send out a letter listing the names of the men who were appointed to the committees mentioned above. There was a detailed discussion about the place where the reunion banquet should be held. After the meeting adjourned all of the possible places were visited. Shortly after 6:30 P.M. quite a crowd gathered in the Class of '9 6 Al- cove of the Hotel Bethlehem. I be- lieve the oldest alumnus there came from the class of '83. There were men from many of the later classes. Our class was represented by Fouch- aux, Fraivillig, Griesemer, Hunter, Huyette, Jennings, Kear, Laramy, Le- Van, Long, Maxwell, McFarlan, Mor- rison, and Osborn. After dinner each man related some anecdote that per- tained to the "Lehigh of old" as he knew it. Several of the veteran sup- porters of the Back-Every-Year Club for many years were unable to be there because of illness. The banquet closed when Joe Jackson read the '96 poem and everyone sang the Alma Mater. We learned that Sandy Morrison has one son at Lehigh and another one will enter in the fall. The same is true for George Long. Bill McMorris has a son in college. Bob Linck and Frank Kear each will have a son en- tered in the fall. There must be more sons of '2 6 men in college who have never been reported here. I wish each man who has a son in college would write to me so I could mention the fact in this column. The George Longs have reason to be proud. "Don was initiated into Tau Beta Pi on May 8. We were quite pleased with that and also that he was made Recording Secretary. He is com- pletely happy with his choice of course ( Eng. Ph.) and said that he would take the same if he had to choose again. My other son, Bob, is now lean- ing toward the same course because of his liking for Math and Science." HARRY O. NUTTING. JR. 123 Rugby Road, Syracuse 0, N. Y. Having missed alumni weekend at Bethlehem, and time being too short to await news of those who did at- tend, I shall dispense with that phase. I issued a challenge some months ago to come up with news, where- abouts or addresses of those stricken from our list by the alumni office, and what happens? So to rub it in a bit I'll report to you the scoop of the month — Cedric Leland Smith, Esq., "lost but not forgotten." Dear Mrs. Peare York Gibson, secretary of the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce, states, "Wish to advise that we have just talked with him and he was most enthusiastic to learn of your inquiry." Ced is with the Mid-Continent Petro- leum Corp. and lives at 820 S. 25th St., Terre Haute, Ind. Vac Concilio, counsellor at law lo- cated in Newton, N. J., modestly states he is off the beaten path and doesn't see any of our classmates. Vac's been doing all right as a barrister. As a politician, okay too, for last year he was elected Democratic State Commit- teeman for Sussex County. As a fath- er, superb! He has sired six children, three boys and three girls.

We were all sorry that we did not have more mem- bers of the class back so that we could win one of the prizes, but those who were back voted the get-together the best in our twenty years. Those who were back really went all out and bad a grand time. We had 7 7 par- ticipants, although our official regis- tration count was only 74. as three failed to register by the noon dead- line. As it happened. 74 was our num- ber as three that were in the parade were not at the dinner and three oth- ers that were not in the parade were present at the dinner. Those in attend- ance at the reunion were: Anderson, Austin, Auten, Badgley, Balir, Barnes, Bennetch, R. S. Bennett, Blackmar, Buhner, Bower, Briggs, Brown, Col- lins, Conneen, Cross, Danko, E. R.

Highlighting the whole week-end we might say that we had the biggest crowd of any class at the Alumni Banquet on Friday night. We had thirty-four there and we copped a few THE ALUMNI BULLETIN Hi her dlsl Incl ions, too, We ted In i he singing of college sunn*, we had one ol our members t Fred Wyckofl | lead the community singing, we were the ii"i ii || class I here, and we wound up in maK lng lionorarj members of Pres- ident Whltaker, E. <;. Grace, and Tom Girdler. Everything wenl off swell in the parade and, of course, we feel thai "m '■ « a/ robbed" by not getl inn at least an honorable menl Ion. There Is no question about one championship we did win — our dinner was I he .long- est on record. However, everyone en- joyed it and Jack Conneen is to be complimented for his unique plan of asking for a speaker for each one of the twenty years. The men wi'v pick- ed by lot right there before everyone and it went over very well. At the short business meeting after our class banquet, Jack Conneen ex- plained that he was resigning as class president so that he could devote more time to his program and work in his capacity as class agent. Joe Girdler brought back old times as he took the floor in a political speech to nominate Ed Small for the vacancy. At this point Frank Tucker put on a per- ipatetic speech concerning the political philosophies of Girdler and his fol- lowers. However, it all came out clean and Ed Small was elected class presi- dent by acclamation. On the same ballot of acclaim Tucker was elected chairman of the next reunion com- mittee, our 25th, in 1955. In passing out bouquets to our members let us not forget the good work done by some of them: the short speeches made by Many, Myer, Pin 1 1 s Badgley, and the sixteen others; the good work of the chairman of the committee, Ted Olmsted; Bob Ben- nett's handling of the entertainment problem; Ed Small's fine work as com- mittee treasurer; the work of the resl of the committee — Somerville, Traeg- er. Letowt, and Conneen; George Cross' excellent work in helping Ed Small with the class registration; and the very fine treatment accorded us by the Saucon Valley Country Club for which we must again mention Bob Bennett and John Somerville. We gained another distinction that could not be matched by any other class — we had the alumnus who trav- elled the farthest distance to get to the reunion, namely: Bob Kline, who came all the way from the Canal Zone to make it. We also had the bitterest golf feud of the entire reunion in the noted Bennett vs. O'Leary matches. We understand Jerry took the honors for Friday and Bob for Saturday, or was it the other way around? We could put down a great deal more, but we are really held to a limit this issue as all the other re- union classes will have longer-than- usual columns. Your correspondent would like to thank all of you who extended "them there now kind words" about our contributions this JULY. 1 9 5 O 41 past year. We hope to keep rolling with a column every month and one that the class will be well proud of. I am sure that if all of you who prom- ised to send in material will do so we will always have plenty of news. Let's look ahead now to 1955 and think how much bigger and better we can make that silver jubilee, our 2 5th. There will be no more Bulletins until fall, and then that old pigskin will be with us again and, well, that's an- other story. So long, fellows, until the next issue.

Seventeen years have passed since our graduation, and the 19 50 alumni reunion is behind us. I'm sorry I was not able to get down to Bethlehem for at least part of the week-end and re- gret having missed the opportunity of seeing any old friends who were there. However, there are three reasons why it was impossible. First, on Friday, June 16, my uncle had dinner and spent the night at our house on his way from his home in Reading, Pa. to New Haven to attend his 55th alumni reunion at Yale. Secondly, Saturday, June 17, was my mother-in-law's birthday and Dor- ie, my wife, invited all her mother's relatives to our house for a supper party to celebrate the occasion. The third reason on Sunday, June IS, our son had to leave at 9:30 a.m. for New Brunswick where he spent the following week as a delegate from Bloomfield High School to Jersey Boy's State at Rutgers. Anyway, I put on my little brown chapeau from our 13th reunion, pour- ed myself some beer in the brown mug from our 5th reunion and was there in spirit at least, even though I'd like to have been there in person in- cluding spirit, spirits, etc. Now I'm looking forward to next year, in the hope of seeing all those I missed this time as well as many more. I just learned that Jerry Mintz was recently appointed assistant to the chief engineer of Mack Truck Com- pany. It seems that Jerry joined Mack right after graduation, spent 1% years on assembly work, was made shop en- gineer in charge of bus construction in '3 6 and engineer in charge of the Bus Division in '43. Congratulations! Jerry, let us hear from you with some news about family, hobbies, etc. P.S. Jerry can be found at Mack's Allen- town plant. gteuu oj t934 CHARLES M. DENISE. JR. 810 W. Market St., Bethlehem, Pa. Last year when we had our 15th a suggestion was made that we have a meeting place each year for reunion weekend. We tried it out this year and five of us got there — Ben Bishop, Walt Miller, Jim Jobbins, John I5ci<l- ler and myself. We had dinner at the Saucon Valley Country Club and then helped several other classes, who were there also, to celebrate their anniver- saries. Foster Gearhart could not make it Saturday, but did get up Sun- day for a little golf. Walt Miller tells me he is getting around the country quite a bit now and will get in touch with you fellows when he is in your vicinity. I hereby appoint him "roving correspondent" and ask all of you to see him when you can. Walt is quite enthusiastic about these yearly reunions, and I must agree that the five of us had a lo.t of fun. A putting contest was held about ten o'colck Saturday night and Bishop and Denise defeated the class of 19 30 represented by Bob Bennett and Jerry O'Ueary. So even if we didn't win the 1). M. Petty Flag, we did not let our honor be tarnished. Other highlights were the presence of Gerry Leaman, our new assistant wrestling coach whom we adopted as a member of our class (he made quite a hit with every- one) — Col. P.S. (Puss) Sadler very much in evidence — John Beidler's tee shot on #4 Saturday — we almost got a drink on it. George McMeans is again in the news. He is now works manager for Kaiser Steel Corp., Fontana, Califor- nia Plant. If this keeps up, I will al- ways have something to put in the column. Correction of a previous report — Jim Jobbins is residing at 13 4-A Dock St., Easton, Pa. Another new address — Bill Beale is now in Albuquerque, N. Mex., 4451 Avenida Del Sol, as branch manager for Minneapolis-Hon- eywell Register Company. Well, so long until next fall. 1 will try to be a little more prompt next year if I get some cooperation from you fellows. (7fa.<i<i o£ 7935 JOHN DEB. CORNELIUS Brouohton, I'a. 15-Year Reunion I was there! Where were you'.' if you missed it, you missed a whale of a good time and failed to see a lot of your friends who were looking for you. There were twelve of us present at the alumni banquet Friday night. We only expected three or four, so it was better than we had hoped. The ban- quet was held in Grace Hall but, for my money, was too long - - getting started late, slow service, and the president's "State of the University" message. I feel this speech should be moved back to the Saturday morning meeting and a copy mailed to all a- lumni. We had a good turnout for the par- ade. If you have trouble recognizing anyone in the class picture, it is not because they have changed that much, but because of the false noses, glasses, beards, etc., that we wore in the par- ade. And we received several rounds of applause as we inarched to the field, though we did not receive any of the awards which were presented there. Then the new addition to the gym was dedicated and opened for inspection. It would be worth a special trip to Bethlehem to take a look at the new pool and practice wrestling room. They are both honeys! Most of the class adjourned to the Maennerchor to pass time until the class banquet.

STILLS • DRYERS • EVAPORATORS • CRYSTALLIZERS • PROCESS VESSELS OPERATING AT VACUUMS LIMITED BY THE VAPOR PRESSURE OF THE CONDENSATE? Many stills, dryers, evapo- rators* crystal lizers and other processing vessels are operating at vacua limited by the vapor pressure of the condensate. This means on the average an absolute pressure of about 2.(V' Hg. Most owners of such equipment do not realize how practical and econom- ical it is to put a Booster Evactor in the line between the vessel and the condenser and maintain an absolute pressure of 0.5", 0.25" or even lower. The benefits of this higher vacuum in improving qual- ity and capacity are often very substantial. The steam jet type of vacuum pump has continually gained in favor for I ml: h vacuum in indus- trial process work. The total ab- sence of moving parts is a big ad- vantage and means many years of service, with no maintenance cost. Available in single, two-, three-, four- and five-stage units for vacuum from a few inches up to a small fraction of 1 in.m. Hg. absolute. Croll-Reynolds have been spe- cializing on this type of equip- ment for over 30 years, and have made thousands of separate in- stallations. Their engineers have extensive experience in applying it to numerous different processes, and are available for consultation without obligation. Literature is also available on request.

Rosemont Dr., Bethlehem, Pa. Republic Steel Corporation 3100 East 45th Street Cleveland 4, Ohio June 7, 1950 Mr. Franc H. Burnett, Jr. 726 Seventh Avenue Bethlehem, Pa. Dear Franc: For the first time since graduation, it will not be possible for me to at- tend Lehigh Alumni Reunion. Accord- ingly I would like to enlist your good services in writing the reunion col- umn this year. Although I haven't heard from the alumni office regard- ing the July issue specifically, the schedule put out at the beginning of the year indicated that copy must he on Nell Early's desk by Saturday, June 2 4. If it is not too much trouble. I would appreciate your making me a carbon copy of the column when you type it up. Incidentally in past years I have never been successful in personally sighting all of the 39'ers who return. I have augmented my personal list by obtaining the official list from the alumni office. They have always been most cooperative in this respect. I am sure if you will ask the girls at the registration desks, (explaining that you want the final count) to pro- vide you with such a list, you will find they will render the usual coopera- tion. On the other hand, not every- body who attends reunion registers so it will probably be well for you to keep your own running list as well. If for any reason you cannot take JULY. 1 9 5 O 43 on the assignment, please let me know right away so that I can find someone else. I hope this won't be necessary in as much as I think you are the best qualified man to do it. Cordially, (S) Hank H. T. S. Heckman 1224 B. Rosemont Drive Bethlehem, Pa. June 13, 1950 Mr. H. T. S. Heckman Republic Steel Corp. 3100 Bast 45th St. Cleveland 4, Ohio Dear Hank: For some reason, your letter arriv- ed only yesterday, which doesn't give you much time to secure a replace- ment. Unfortunately, I will be out of town next weekend and will conse- quently be unable to attend the re- union. I have contacted several local '3 9ers, but they are all either unable or unwilling to assume the task. How- ever, Mark Wertz said he may go to the Friday affair and will let me know- any class news he picks up. Saw Don De Vries at the National Open at Merion on Thursday. Don was marshalling, which gave us time only to shout hello at each other. Yours, (S) Franc Republic Steel Corporation 3100 East 45th Street Cleveland 4, Ohio June 15, 1950 CB-1 Mr. Franc H. Burnett 1224 East Rosemont Drive Bethlehem, Pa. Dear Franc: Thanks for your card of June 13 which arrived this morning. Appar- ently the delay in my letter's reaching you was caused by the fact that I did not have your new address. I have changed my records accordingly. I gather from your remarks that you are planning to write the reunion column despite the fact that you will be unable to attend. I certainly appre- ciate your efforts in this direction, in- asmuch as it will be a lot easier for you to fill in the blanks by local phone calls than it would be for me way out here in Cleveland. Thanks too for the note on Don De Vries. That will give me something to start off the first fall column. Very truly yours, (S) Hank H. T. S. Heckman As you can see from the above, your J. V. correspondent gave the varsity man a straw (see last sentence of first paragraph, FHB note of 8-13- 50) and he grabbed it with gusto. Actually, my own silence in the past year has troubled my conscience to the extent that I am glad to relieve it by transmitting here a few of the gleanings I have been able to scrape together. This may be the first time in history a class reunion column was written by a little man who wasn't there, and that's something in itself. First, I'd like to report that I have a definite clue as to the mysterious '39er who makes 60 G's per annum (10th Reunion survey). When one works for a large corporation and can use its letter-heads for personal cor- respondence, that means one is right up there. Of course, it means free ad- vertising if the letter is reproduced in a widely circulated periodical, so I don't know .... The '39 attendance at the reunion was not impressive, even for an off year. Just five men registered: Hobby (lark, Milt Grannatt, Bob Girdler, Bob Kiilin.s, Joe Morris. '3 9 integra- tion wasn't what it should have been either. I was able to contact only one of the above, and he reported that he had seen one of the others at a distance but hadn't gotten to talk to him. But that's all right, fellows. We'll make up for it with a mighty 15th Reunion in '54, Joe Stalin willing. Mark Wertz didn't make it on Fri- day but, bless him, he came through with a few bits which I can relay to you. First of all, there's Mark himself. Last June, Mark switched from Laros Silk Co. to Lehigh Structural Steel Co. as plant engineer and tells me I hat he's really busy. Been working nights and weekends to get that structural steel out. Mark also had a reunion item. Walt Wells was here on Friday and called Mark from the Maenner- chor. Walt is still in the Marine Corps and is stationed at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. Mark has seen Clar- ence Heller several times. Clarence is at present living at Wind Gap and is selling materials handling equipment for the Autolift Accessory and Engi- neering Co. of Kingston, Pa. Mark al- so tells me that he saw Leo TJIiI walk- ing down 4th Street, Bethlehem, the other day. Since Mark was in a car in traffic he wasn't able to stop and talk. How about getting in touch with Hank. Leo, and telling him about yourself? Thanks very much, Mark, for these tips. Incidentally, the June issue of Factory Management and Maintenance has a spread on Lehigh Structural in which you can see Mark in his natural habitat. John Worsley recently made the headlines in the Globe-Times. John, a major, was made commanding officer of the medical section of the local ar- my reserve unit. You may have noticed the subtle dig Hank made in his reference to my address change. The change having been made nine months ago, that was additional evidence of my neglect, and Hank, if he meant it as a dig, was perfectly justified. We moved on Sep- tember 1 to a development called Rosemont Acres and completed a Le- high quadrangle which reads, clock- wise from the southwest corner. Frank Rabold, Don Barnum '37, Nate Silver- and Dalta%<i It was from a doodle much like that reproduced here, that men in our Chemical Department developed their idea for the Dowtherm Varnish kettles now in use by several Paint and Var- nish manufacturers today. The problem was to find a sound en- gineering way to provide the uniform hii/h temperatures required in varnish production and at the same time to eliminate the tremendous waste in raw materials and fuel entailed by the old direct fire system. The rough sketch, translated into Pilot Plant equipment at Devoe Laboratories in Louisville, proved out. From it were developed mass production industrial units. The low temperature gradient and close control of temperatures and form- ulae made possible by this method of production in turn resulted in such fine varnishes as: "S7 SPAR", "HONG KONG SPAR", "SUPER MARBLE FLOOR" and "TRITON CLEAR" — all famous products of the chemical engi- neering research and scientific manu- facturing methods employed at Devoe.

Rutherford, A'. J. As the old Irish-dialect joke puts it: "Mrs. Flanagan, wuz ye to the party last night?" "I did." "Did what?" "Wint." As nearly as the class nose count can be deciphered, SI men from the class wint to an eminently satisfactory reunion. Yr. class correspondent, in fact, had too good a time reuning to do a real job of reporting, but here are the highlights: Our section of the P-rade was led by the station-wagon "Mobile Head- quarters." which dispensed beer from the tailgate both before and during the march. ( A snappy job of planning and logistics was the cutting in of a fresh keg, which was waiting at the entrance to the stadium. It was in- stalled with all the speed of a pit tire change at Indianapolis.) The T-shirts, painters' overalls, and caps of the costume will be very prac- tical when the Little Woman says. "You've had your fun. now get out there and paint the garage." The Maennerchor beer is as good as ever (one man was severely beaten about the head for trying to get a martini at the class "cocktail" party) and the service even surlier than usu- al when you try to order something to eat. The alumni banquet, to my way of thinking, was much too long (most men at the class table seemed to con- cur). The official gathering at the Wald- heim was above reproach, with ade- quate supplies of restorative and an elegant collation served under the trees. A gratifying number of men an- nounced that they enjoy the class notes in the Bulletin, and I have prom- ises from a good many of the class wives that they'll encourage an oc- casional postal for publication.

Although I am sure that more mem- bers ot the class of 1941 must have attended some part, of the reunion on June 16 and 17, I am sorry to report that I saw only two fellows from our class. Jim Mitchell, however, was the equivalent of at least a dozen due to his efforts in organizing many phases of the affair. Johnny Stives was hav- ing a wonderful time keeping track of the balloons with which his two chil- dren were playing. I would appreciate hearing from any of you who may have attended and haven't received your just desserts by being mentioned in this column. I did see Don Schoen at the Harvard Business School on June 9 and 10. He had exciting news to report- — the birth of Robert Taylor Schoen on June 5, 1950.

Speaking of children, during May I received a very interesting letter from Dr. Raymond Kiefer, Jr., who is living at 1333 Morton Avenue, Louisville, Ky. Ray is doing some very inter- esting work, mainly with children, at the Louisville Mental Hygiene Clinic. But let him tell you his own story: "After getting my M.D. from Penn and having a nine-month internship, in the Army I kept screaming to do psychiatry since I had a big interest and a little experience. My naive re- quest got results: I was soon having a merry old time reading X-rays and ex- amining venereal sores at a huge se- paration center near here. I ended up near Manila on Luzon as Division (86th Inf. Div.) Neuropsychiatrist, Division V. D. Control Officer, Division Medical Inspector and Division Rat Control Officer! I particularly treasure the latter, and I shined my buttons very hard every time I thought about it. (They were really hard up in those postwar days for personnel, as you can see.) I also was lucky prior to that in getting a luxury cruise to Japan by being assigned as Transport Surgeon on a Liberty Ship toting troops there (post war, of course). "After leaving the Army, I went to a State Hospital near Philadelphia. (They must have thought I'd be a hopeless case as a patient, so they de- cided I was a psychiatrist upon leav- ing a year and a half later.) Thence to Louisville for two years' training in child psychiatry. 'Family psychi- atry' might almost be a better name for it, since we seek to give better harmony to the whole family even though we focus mostly on the boy or girl and their problems.

"As you can see by the return ad- dress I have departed from Harris- burg and am now making my home with the family (two kids and wife) in Plainfield. N. J. — working in Perth Amboy with General Cable Corp. as personnel manager. There are about five Lehigh men with the company but none from the class of '4 2. "Saw John Read in Montclair the other week. John is doing very well with Walter Kidde and recently cele- brated his first wedding anniversary. "It's been a long time since our days at Carlisle. Never will I forget the good time we had in and about Harris- burg just before we split up for our various Army assignments. I guess there must have been 10 to 15 of us around there for awhile. "Arch, I do wish you would stop off to see us if you ever come into this area — that is, if you leave your insur- ance policies at home." Art Rich's business career continues to progress, according to the Buffalo Evening News: "Appointment of Arthur H. Rich as an account executive at Comstock, Duties & Co. advertising agency has JULY. 1 9 5 O 47 been announced by Henry W. Corn- stock, agency partner. "Mr. Rich, a native of Buffalo, has been an account executive at the Roiz- en Advertising Agency, Inc., and pur- chasing manager of the Rich Ice Cream Company. A graduate of Lehigh University, he is a member of the Sat- urn. University and Greater Buffalo Advertising Clubs and of Sigma Phi Fraternity. He resides at 283 Brant- wood Rd., Eggertsville." Thanks for the letters, fellows, and I hope to hear from a lot more of you in the coming months. &**& o£ ?<?43 SAMUEL J. DAVY I3f East 8!>ih St., New York lft. N. Y. After the long silence, two — repeat — two letters came on the same day. One from Captain George Reid, the other from Burt Bander. Burt writes: "Might as well formally announce a new addition to the Bauder family. Af- ter two boys, our luck finally changed and we had a girl last November 28. Now the family totals five, which is good, at least at income tax time if no other. But seriously, the boys and girl are all fine and are growing so fast that they don't remain children long. "Am still over at Western Electric, the only one of our class who is still at Kearny. They have stopped the cut- backs, at least temporarily, and have settled down at around 10,000 em- ployes. I don't know if any of our gang are still at the Allentown plant but the eight or nine who were working at Kearny sure disappeared fast. "Were you over to see the wrestling meet at the New York AC? I saw it on television and it sure was good to see the Brown and White taking some- body into camp again. "Haven't seen any others from our class recently so can't pass along any more news." In answer to Burt's query, there were several '43's employed at West- ern Electric's Allentown plant,at last count (about a year ago). Frank Bow- er and Charlie Bennett are two who come to mind at once, and there are, or were, others. George writes: "In April of 1947 I was ordered back to the States to take graduate work in political science at Syracuse Univer- sity. I left there in September of 1949 having received a Master's Degree in Political Science and finished the resi- dence requirements for my doctorate. The latter degree will be a Ph.D. in In- ternational Relations, with my special area of interest being Latin America. In September I was ordered to a new assignment in Washington, D. C, in the famous, or infamous, Pentagon. My assignment here is Chief of the In- ternational Agreements Section. As the name implies, it has to do with the general field of those international af- fairs in which the Army has a particu- lar interest.

"Before reporting for duty here in Washington, I took unto myself a wife on the 17th day of September, and Mary and I spent a month honeymoon- ing at Split Rock Lodge in the Poco- nos. We are now living in a very nice housing development outside Alexan- dria, Va. I would like to make a stand- ing invitation for any of my old friends and classmates to visit us whenever they are passing through Washington. I expect to be stationed here for two or three years- and after that anyone's guess is as good as mine." George, whose ROTC classmates will recall as an enthusiastic student of the military, executed a sharp manoeuvre careerwise in making himself a useful specialist after plenty of broad gen- eral service. We can vouch for that apartment development, too, which, if it's the one we've seen on the road to Mount Vernon, has an excellent view up and down the Potomac. (The name of George's place is the Belle View Apartments — aptly named, for a change.) That's all for now. See you in church, or, and this is a little more likely, when another '43er drops us a line. <2t*u. «j 7944 WILLIAM B. HURSH Parkhurst Apt.?., Bethlehem, Pa. I am pleased to report much news for this issue, in bold contrast to that available for publication in recent months. Of considerable interest is news of marriages and engagements, coming in some cases from official sources and in others via the grapevine. The first is the marriage of Thomas Barman to the former Jane Beckel of Bethlehem. The wedding was here in town, of course, in middle June. Another official com- munique concerned itself with the mar- riage of Bob Hicks in Baltimore to the former Doris Britton of that city. The date — May 2 7. The last ofllcial report was by letter from Warren Dix, who wrote with much enthusiasm of a girl named Laura, to whom his engage- ment was being announced over the weekend of June 24. She is a girl from the suburbs of Cleveland and. although I have not been advised of it to date. I am sure she has a last name. Grapevine news includes a report of Don Brownlee's having been married recently in Washington or nearby, and a rumor of John Cook's coming wedd- ing in the vicinity of Boston. That is sketchy news. I'll admit, but perhaps I'll be able to go into greater detail in my next column. Reunion weekend has come and gone for another year, and it was a quiet one for '44. That was expected, though, since we are saving our strength for 1954 and our 10th. at which time we will turn out in numbers the like of which Old South Mountain has never before seen. There were several highlights of this year's celebration. I was unable to at- tend the banquet Friday night, but I have heard that it was, as usual, a fine affair, and that this time a great deal of credit for that is due to our old Le- high figure — Bosey Reiter. Bosey was honored at the banquet with an Alum- ni Association Special Award and in a sense it was his farewell to some of his former friends, for he is leaving his home on the campus and moving to Connecticut. Reports have it that Bosey's remarks were excellent, and that is not hard to believe. Anyone -18 THE ALUMNI BULLETIN who tins ever bad the pleasure ol bear- ing Bosej speak will know what I mean He has n touch that conies onlj after .1 long, full and extremel) pleas- ant a a wiiii men and young men and an Institution such as Lehigh. 1 le w in be missed Another highlight was the dedica- tion ol the new annex to Taylor Gym- nasium. This addition was recently completed, and the alumni and their friends were Invited to Inspect it. I'll not take time to describe It, because 1 expect ii is featured elsewhere In ihis edition. 1 will comment, though, by saying that it really is a step forward tor Lehigh, tilling a need that has long existed, and tilling it beyond all ex- pectations, tin your next visit to the campus allow time enough to see it. You will be very pleased to see a con- crete example of what your contribu- tion to the Progress Fund has made possible. There wen- a tew familiar faces on campus over that weekend. These in- cluded Frank Camarda, with wife and small one: (.il Smith; Tom McKinley, who incidentally was the source of ray "grapevine" news, and Dick Seals. The only one with whom 1 spent any time at all was Tom. He is practicing law In Palmerton in his own office, and he appears to like it fine. Heard from one of the others, probably Gil, that "Whit Snyder has recently moved ahead in Crucible's combustion department. If the report I received is correct Whit has don.- v , i \ H ell tor himself anil is to be commended Will close with the news thai bj the time this reaches you I will he a mar- ried man.

Last weekend our class dis- tinguished itself with exactly two members in the alumni parade! Thanks lo Dave Gerb and myself, we repre- sented the rest of you fellows. The class of '10. ahead of us in the parade, wondered what happened to the '4. r iers. Paul Itueliler, Henry N'icineyei', Dave Gerb and myself held our class dinner at the Sun Inn on Saturday night. The big topic of discussion was the lack of class interest for our 5th reunion. We hope that our 10th reunion will not be a repetition of last weekend. Out ot l.~>2 members of the class at least 20 to 25 fellows should have shown up. This is based on an average percent- age for all other classes. Thus you can see how poorly we did. Prank Snyder ami Robert Curtis were on the campus Saturday during i lie reunion, I talked to hoi h of i hem hui neither one could participate in the activities due io other commit ments.

UcKean, Jr., '^8 JULY. 1 9 5 O 49 We're really getting started now; received a couple of letters from Chuck Hat'ner which were most encouraging. Chuck is an instructor in political sci- ence at Moravian College in Bethlehem and is living there at present. He has been good enough to accept the posi- tion of chairman of an organizing com- mittee to get things started for our 19 51 reunion. It's a little early to get this started, I suppose, but with this class it has to be done. I have heard so far from one person who would like to work with Chuck to start things roll- ing — Maurice (Dinty) Deane; do we hear more? Anyone interested can get in touch with Chuck Hafner at Mora- vian College, Bethlehem, Pa. (Depart- ment of History and Political Science), or with me at my home address. Chuck will need plenty of help, so try and co- operate with him as much as possible. We thank you . . . Heard also from Dick Greene and I quote: "It's been so long since I've writ- ten to you that I've lost track of how many congratulations, best wishes, etc., are due you. In fact, though, it was that soulful complaint and plea of yours in the Alumni Bulletin that aroused me finally. "Well anyway, hello, and glad to be thinking of you again; it brings back memories of gay, care free, youthful days we spent together behind the text- books and sliderules, and a few of less academic nature. "Believe it or not I'm still spending time behind the books, although now and then a few diversions (bless their little hearts) obtrude. I'm writing my Ph.D. thesis here at U. of P., and at Penn's expense, too (got myself a fel- lowship); God only knows when I'll finish. Despite a rather narrow escape I'm still a bachelor, and now that I think of it darn little else has hap- pened of any interest at all . . ." Chuck Hafner writes in part: ". . . By the way, you probably no- ticed the new letterhead on the sta- tionery. I'm now an instructor of po- litical science at Moravian. So I'm still close to old South Mountain and get there occasionally. Incidentally, Mora- vian played Lehigh on May 2 in the district championship playoffs. I sat in the stands, or should I say on the fence, and watched a good ball game. Both teams played a good game, but Moravian had one bad inning which resulted in their defeat by a 5-2 score. I was particularly interested in the baseball team's streak of 6 straight victories because our team in 19 4 5 was the first, and for a long while the last, to have five straight victories. In 1945 we won 11 and lost 3 which was one of the best percentages of any Le- high team . . ." That's about it for this month.

THOMAS BACHMANN S!)Z North St., White Plains, N. Y This issue is a reunion number. Our class didn't have any official part in the program and I was unable to get to Bethlehem. As a result, no news on that subject. In all fairness to the classes which have big news we shall cut our column to rock bottom this time. The Westchester Lehigh Club met on Thursday, June S, at the Scarsdale American Legion Post and truly had a perfect time. I diligently wrote down all the names of our contemporaries, only to lose same — guess I had one beer too many. I do recall seeing Dixie Walker, '41, Ed Tattershall, Dick Par- sons, Creadore, Jim Finger, Gilroy, Bud Delta, George Astrove, etc. Hope to see more at the fall meeting! ! Much to my surprise the other Sat- urday afternoon I received a phone call from Al McCauley. He was east (from western Pennsylvania) on an emergency repair job from Elliott County. We had an enjoyable chat, dinner and more beer with Bud Deft'aa. Regrettably we announce the pass- ing of James B. Price, Jr. Jim has ex- pressed his desire to join the rolls of the class of '43, so we delete him from amongst us. Just a hurried glance at changes in addresses: Bill Whighaiu has moved to 1 S.
